They have gifted us these 10 exceptional Amazon movies and documentaries, each an opportunity to experience the wild beauty of this fantastic land.

By no means this blog entry claims to be a movie critique or a movie award list for that matter. We would rather leave that to industry professionals. So, if you are after an in-depth analysis of photography, character or script, the following might disappoint but our list will not fail to leave you craving for more as most of these films have been critically acclaimed in one way or another. We have picked these movies according to how helpful they are to understand the Amazon region from a geographical, biological, and human perspective. What makes the Amazon such a special place are the rivers, the forest, the wildlife, its peoples and their culture, and how they all interact as one giant ecosystem. So, below is a list of 10 intriguing films that use the Amazon as a protagonist rather than just a background for a story.
Embrace of the Serpent tells the most-unusual story of a life-transcending friendship between an Amazonian shaman, called Karamakate, the last survivor of his people, and two scientists that, over the course of 40 years, travel through the Amazon in search of a sacred plant. The epic tale was inspired by the journals of the first European explorers of the Colombian Amazon, Theodor Koch-Grunberg and Richard Evans Schultes. Despite being a black and white movie, Embrace of the Serpent does a lot more than telling a story set in the background of the amazingly rich forest of the Amazon. It manages to capture the great complexity of the indigenous culture and their relationship with European settlers without ever falling for Manichean judgments.
Based on David Grann's nonfiction bestseller, The Lost City of Z tells the incredible story of British explorer Percy Fawcett who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. By switching from the conservative society of Great Britain to the lush environment of the Amazon, the movie brings to light some of the most striking aspects of the rainforest while paying tribute to the great tales of explorers that, like Percy Fawcett, have ventured and got lost in that giant natural maze.
Green River, The Time of the Yakurunas is a sensory journey into the spiritual depths of the Amazon. The film follows the flowing waters of the Amazon river that connect the lives of the people of three isolated villages of the rainforest. While it may start with an anthropological purpose, the movie relies on its beautiful photography and its stunning soundscape to fully immerse the viewers in this Amazonian catchment area. Lulled by the spiritual sounds of Ayahuasca chants the river becomes the main protagonist and acts as a reflection screen for the shadows that move along its seemingly calm waters.
A perfect film for the whole family, Amazonia fills a space half-way in between a work of fiction and a wildlife and nature documentary. While it shows no apparent pretention to educate on scientific subjects, the movie effortlessly succeeds in introducing the notion of ecosystems in an entertaining way and the result is surprising. The story follows Sai, a capuchin monkey born and raised in captivity, that finds himself alone and lost in the wilderness of the Amazon jungle after a plane crash. Following his adventures, the movie features scores of intriguing rainforest residents: jaguars, crocodiles, boas, tapirs, giant otters, and more. The film gets the family-friendly tick and it is a great way for children and adults alike to learn about the wilderness of the Amazon.
