Amazonia – The awakening of Florestania, is a documentary that discusses how Amazon forest and Nature itself has been treated in Brazil since the beginning of the 20th Century, bringing together the testimonies of many different personalities from Brazilian society, such as indigenous leaderships, environmentalists, representatives of the third sector, journalists, artists, intellectuals and many more who have been somehow fighting to preserve this most precious Brazilian legacy. The movie leads to the rise of the concept of Florestania, which means “forestship” (a word that synthesizes the concept of citizenship and forest rights) and is the genetic code of our identity.
