BEFORE THEY DISAPPEAR
The renowned Czech traveller Jakub Vágner ventures into the Amazon rainforest to find a handful of native tribes that have voluntarily separated themselves from the modern world.
Due to mining companies colonising the forests and cutting down trees, the majority of the area’s indigenous tribes have withdrawn ever-deeper into the heart of the forest. Aside from the unending flight from the miners, the native tribes face pressure to implement modern technologies into their lives. How long can they resist the encroachment of modern civilization?
