In addition to making documentary films, Jorge Bodanzky conducts video workshops in communities along the Amazon River. Within the River, Among the Trees was made while working with 35 communities whose only access to the outside world is through the river. He enables them to tell their own stories and express their concerns for their future in the rainforest. Facing social and environmental pressures, these small indigenous communities struggle to continue an existence in harmony with their environment.
