The Matsés reside deep in the mysterious rainforest of Amazonia.
With the help of the anthropologist ‘Andrey Matusovskiy’ and expedition leader ‘Alexey Kolbov’, this documentary provides a rare glimpse into the Matsés’ traditional way of life, showing their unique knowledge of the rainforest's biodiversity.
Through breathtaking cinematography and intimate interviews, we explore their centuries-old traditions, rituals, and the role of the jaguar. From medicinal plant knowledge, passed down through generations, to their sustainable hunting practices, the Matsés’ profound wisdom offers valuable insights into coexisting harmoniously with nature.
As the Matsés face increasing external pressures from deforestation, encroaching modernization, and the exploitation of their ancestral lands, it is a must to shed light on their resilient efforts to preserve their identity and safeguard the Amazon’s delicate ecosystem.
‘Expedition Amazonia’ serves as a powerful testimony to the importance of preserving both cultural diversity and the ecological treasures of the Amazon rainforest for future generations.
