Amazon Forever

Synopsis: Nicholas is a young cinematographer, shooting a documentary about the ancient tribal ritual in an Indian village near the Amazon, where he fell in love with the daughter of a chief, at the ...
90 min

My name is Nicolas

and that's me with my bow and arrows,

I am about 11 years old.

We spend a happy childhood

in a beautiful countryside

a world away from the Amazon.

In my little head,

I already ask myself the usual questions

Who am I? Is there a destiny?

And if there is one, which is my mine?

That's my brother.

My father panics, gives me his camera.

This is how I start to film.

Later the camera becomes my life,

my weapon and also, my instrument.

To answer all these questions.

Don't worry, he's just kidding!

Is there another reality?

Another life at the end of the world?

Like I read in my Tintin albums

and my atlas.

Can my destiny be written in my dreams?

Where do dreams come from?

My name is Ayupu.

When this story takes place

life is still good.

We live in the forest,

with no worries, no money,

we don't need it.

I am already very concerned with

the loggers destroying our forest.

But the young were more interested

in the "meaning of life".

I like Tapi's ass, it's so firm!

I like his front as well.

Who do you like Luacema?

I don't know yet!

My son Tapi and his friend Tonoli

were busy studying the secrets

of the forest.

Tonoli's is bigger than Tapi's.

Tapi says size doesn't matter!

Tapi, I think Luacema likes you.

I knew our days were counted.

I was waiting for a sign...

I asked the spirit for a man, not a kid!

Move away, it is forbidden to land here

I don't speak Portuguese,

do you speak English?

I am the director

of this Toa-Toari reservation,

you are in a strictly forbidden area,

you are not allowed to come here,

you must leave right now,

I am sorry,

I am Nicolas Debre,

you can read my name on the paper,

and this is Ruben Machado,

my guide and interpreter.

We're going to have fun with these two.

Let's go to the post and I will brief you.

You can take all.

He's cute, no?

I think he likes you.

Here is your bungalow gentlemen.

This is Gromac,

he seems pretty wild,

and he hates white men.

Nicolas, it's a good thing.

We only walk into the jungle

in daylight,

imagine, if you like to do it by night.

Welcome my friends,

you are leaving tonight,

for the village of the dead, on foot.


Kurapu Ceremony starts tomorrow,

and if you don't leave tonight

you will miss it.

I can't miss it, that's why I am here,

I am supposed to film it!

First meet Tonoli,

he is your guide,

just follow him,

he will take you to the village

And this is Tapi,

he is learning to be the next chief,

so he can't speak much,

you must listen, you understand.

Hey Ruben, it will be perfect for you.

Kuarup, it's the most important ritual

among the tribes in this region,

It is through those who died in the past year.

During the ceremony,

the spirit of the dead

are sent to the other world.

Sort of a poltergeist!

How did you two meet?

At the airport.

When I arrived in Rio,

he offered to help me as a guide,

he told me about

his past experience with Indians.

Is that right?

Yes. Of course!

I have a lot of clients

from all over the world.

And tell me how far

is this Lululari village?


It depends,

it's about 6 hours if you are in shape.

Six hours??


We are here,

and this is where you are going.

It is all rainforest

It used to be, when I first came here,

an ocean of trees,

but today it is all gone

except on the reservation,

a green island

in the middle of the desert.

Just in case you lose me...

How can I lose you,

I can hear you a mile away.

Are you okay?

Yes, I'm fine.

So, let's go.

We are quite behind already.

This must be where

the dead are burying.
