ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON
When I plan a documentary I tend to gravitate towards the connection and impact between two different worlds and cultures. I’m interested in stories that explore themes like traveling, art and anthropology, that focus on the “human” side of us all which, nowadays, tends to be put aside. I decided to participate in Artists for the Amazon because I’d like to tell the stories of who depends on its survival. I want to use my skills to show that the Amazon forest is a living organism. To document the hardships and the costumes of those who are threatened by the destruction of their home and culture. To help create an actual proof of the terrifying human rights violation they are experiencing.
