A startling documentary which captures the Amazon in all its complexity, it examines the actions of environmental activists, using the media in an age where truth is a relative term. The film follows a reality TV star and a renowned marine biologist as they each attempt to save the Amazon pink river dolphin from being hunted to extinction, albeit using very different methods. With gorgeous, sweeping aerial views we gain perspective from above, but as the film plunges deep into the murky, tangled rivers, we uncover a shocking scandal that has no simple solution.
