BR Above All

In the North of the Brazilian State of Para is located the world's largest block of protected forests. An area of Amazon Rainforest with the size of the United Kingdom, that shelters a myriad of stories. Indigenous people, cattle ranchers, small farmers, descendents of black slaves, business owners and politicians reflect in their particular way the effects of the potential expansion of BR-163's road deep into the forest, until the border with Suriname. The project of the highway was born back in the times of the Brazilian military dictatorship, and until today hovers like a shadow over the region. This movie, however, isn't about a road. It is a movie about the chasms that separate those who share the same land.
