Tribes On The Edge


Building on a family legacy of exploration and environmental film making, Céline Cousteau journeys to the Brazilian Amazon at the request of tribal leaders in order to bear witness to the indigenous communities' fight for survival. She shares their rarely seen stories of cultural pride and traditional way of life set against the legacy of colonialism, and documents the ever-present threats to their land and health crises triggered by contact with outsiders.
