The video shares fragments of the life stories of 5 riverine women who live in an isolated area of the Amazon, surrounded by the forest. Different ages and different backgrounds, they are united by the Tupana river. For the Amazonian population, rivers are of utmost importance. It’s their access road, where they get the drinking water, fish, where they bathe, wash the clothes and also relax and have some rest. Rivers are fundamental to uncountable traditional communities living at their margins in the Amazon region, and the quality of the waters need to be preserved.
