This is the first film set in central Amazonia to provide logistic cover and specialised field production for cinema and TV teams together with accommodation and access to the natural settings of the region.
The Amazon Film Camp (AFC) is located in the geographical epicentre of continental Amazonia in the middle of its two largest water basins (Amazon and Negro rivers).
The versatility of the installations allows the accommodation of groups of 15 to 40 people.
Energy self-sufficiency, adaptable spaces, and logistics based on multiple experiences: essential ingredients for obtaining maximum performance.
An environment rich in nature and society near supply centres and services to allow efficient and economic production strategies.
Situated on a high coast that visually dominates the Paroá Bay and its islands, this is a huge and varied scenario where it is possible to turn 360º without seeing anything but nature.
Its privileged location allows easy access to wild places and to the productive rhythm of the local population with all the ingredients of both options.
The two species of river dolphins appear regularly in the area, together with smooth and scaly fish, caimans, anacondas, and turtles; porcupines, sloths, chameleons and bats live on the many uninhabited islands that are scattered over the Paroá Bay.
Fishing birds, raptors, macaws, toucans, orioles, vultures; the skies are always full of movement.
In the nearby natural fish farms (Arapaima, Colossoma, etc.) jaguars tend to prowl, stealing large scaly fish that they eat there and then to leave the remains of the feast.
. The jungle region on dry land is rich in felines, primates, rodents, snakes, ant-eaters, and tapirs. Songbirds, butterflies, beetles, mimetic insects…
The local inhabitants, generally immigrants from other more or less distant lands who have arrived at times of spices or rubber or gold, live from subsistence agriculture, hunting and fishing, gathering fruit and medicinal plants, and sporadic services provided to third parties according to their capabilities.
From childhood the Amazon native is capable of feeling and acting in a different way to that we know from our modern societies. In these tropical jungles a high level of attention, perception, and intuition is developed.
These characteristics, which are the result of adaptation to the most diversified ecosystem on earth together with the multiple skills they tend to develop, make them into quite exceptional human beings.
In the case of indigenous societies, as numerous as the characteristics that differentiate them, contact depends on various factors and also requires specific and more complex treatment.
