Amazonia

A little capuchin monkey is flung from captivity to the Amazon wilderness in this live-action adventure. Stuck in a strange and hostile environment filled with predators, our tiny hero looks to brave the odds and adapt to his new surroundings. This scripted docu-drama was shot in the Amazon using its real inhabitants.

"To prepare for Amazonia, director Thierry Ragobert (The White Planet) and his team spent two years doing scientific research, working closely with biologists and animal experts to ensure the accuracy and faithfulness of every sequence. Ragobert's breathtaking footage, featuring a cast of forest animals such as jaguars, crocodiles, kinkajous, boas, and forty capuchin monkeys renders this beautiful and incredibly dangerous rainforest absolutely spellbinding."

I was gobsmacked at how the Coen brothers were able to get an amazing performance from a cat earlier this year with Inside Llewyn Davis. Well, apparently that was nothing, because Amazonia 3Damplifies that awe tenfold by directing an entire rainforest. Working years on the project with biologists and animal experts, director Thierry Ragobert pulls off a very impressive filmmaking feat – one that casts wildlife in their natural environment to tell a family-friendly tale of survival.

I can't help but wonder whether films like this, which treat wildlife as playthings, are essentially anti-environmental.
