Original Title: Rio Rojo

In the north of the Colombian Amazon lies “Río Rojo”, a mythical river that runs through the middle of the forest, also called “the River of the Seven Colours”. Despite the promises of preservation by politicians, its environment becomes threatened as the area is opened up to new visitors. This beautifully observed documentary follows three people: young Oscar, grandmother Doña María, and Indian Sabino, who all live peacefully in the region, very much in communion with nature. The film vividly captures the poetry of this unique landscape and closely observes the everyday existence of its local inhabitants.

Please note: this film contains some distressing scenes which some viewers may find unsettling
