The Amazon forest is a vast pristine nature that has a role in helping regulate life on earth. This nature is not only a domestic gift of Brazil, as it concerns everyone in the world if it is under attack. I believe it is crucial to talk about ecology: the attention we give is not yet enough. In the film, however, I do not make it while taking the side of an activist. But in an exercise of asking questions about the reality surrounding me. It is a personal point-of-view aware of the destruction my country makes upon that forest: a land full of life, culture, and mysteries. I’ve made 0.2 Milligrams of Gold as someone that feels in his body the comfort of progress. And what is the price of this progress?
