Flyers over Amazonia

A film by Herbert Brödl

2008, Dolby Digital, HD CAM/35mm, 1:1,85, 80 Min., Original language with subtitles

Synopsis

Flying as a dream and a passion, a job and a fate. That’s the story of pilots Nilton and Fernando, hoboes of the air.

They fly over Amazonia, the largest river region on the planet and its greatest forest, both a miracle of creation and a target of deforestation. Amazonia is portrayed in brilliant bird’s-eye-view images, through authentic characters and their stories, actors, the pilots’ voices, their thoughts concerning flying, fact and invention. A film that maintains a balance between realism and poetry, everyday life and dreams, combining them to pull the viewer into this world. 

An invitation to fly along.
