About this product

Latin America's Green Heart documents life in the Amazon Basin, from melting glaciers in the Andes to the lush rainforests and boom-towns of Peru and Brazil. A shaman explains the medicinal uses of plants, contrasting with the drivers of deforestation--cattle ranching and soy farming.

This is the second in a trilogy of films about tropical forests and the people and wildlife who depend on them, by independent filmmaker Steve Taylor. Tropical rainforests are home to more than half the world's species and play a crucial role in maintaining the health of our planet. Steve Taylor has travelled across Africa, Amazonia and Borneo to explore first-hand the complex issues of deforestation. Gorillas in Africa, river dolphins in Peru, orangutans in Borneo all feature, along with forest-dwelling people--the traditional custodians of the forest.
