Beyond the Classroom presents "Children of the Amazon"

Description:
Children of the Amazon follows Brazilian filmmaker Denise Zmekhol as she travels a modern highway deep into the Amazon in search of the Indigenous Surui and Negarote children she photographed fifteen years ago. Her journey tells the story of what happened to life in the largest forest on Earth when a road was built straight through its heart. For countless generations, the Amazon rainforest provided a home to the Surui and Negarote people who lived in what they called forest time. And then everything changed with a highway cutting through 2,000 miles of forest. The world of forest time was overrun by farmers, loggers, and cattle ranchers. Lush forest was clear-cut and burned, deadly diseases killed off thousands of Indians, and forest time suffered an irreversible transformation. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 9, 2013
