Thirty years later, believing that he has become a ghost of his former self, Karamakate agrees to join another explorer on a similar mission.




Combining adventure with beautiful black-and-white photography, sobering depictions of colonial misdeeds and a fascinating insight upon the worldview of endangered Amazonian civilizations, this Academy Award nominated drama is an unforgettable experience.
