O Jabuti e a Anta _ The Tortoise and the Tapir

O Jabuti e a Anta _ The Tortoise and the Tapir

A seca em São Paulo é o ponto de partida da viagem. Inquieta com as imagens dos reservatórios vazios no sudeste do Brasil, uma documentarista busca entender estas obras faraônicas, agora construídas no meio da floresta Amazônica. Entre os rios Xingu, Tapajós e Ene, ecoam vozes de ribeirinhos, pescadores e povos indígenas atropelados pela chegada do chamado desenvolvimento. Um boat movie e uma reflexão sobre os impactos de nossos estilos de vida. ------------------ Ficha técnica Direção: Eliza Capai Produção Executiva: Marina Yamaoka Produção: Marina Yamaoka, Eliza Capai Roteiro: Eliza Capai, Carol Quintanilha Direção de Fotografia: Eliza Capai, Carol Quintanilha Montagem: Eva Randolph, edt, Eliza Capai Assistente de Edição: Alice Furtado Still: Carol Quintanilha Fotos adicionais: Eliza Capai, Lilo Clareto, Loiro Cunha, Protásio Nene/Agência Estado Correção de Cor: Fernando Gutierrez e Hugo Cuccurullo Finalização: daesquina Produção Audiovisual Desenho de Som: Pedro Cortez Narrado por: Letícia Sabatella Mixagem: Pedro Cortez Trilha: Fábio Goes, Tami Belfer Co-produção: Greenpeace, Usina da Imagem, daequina Produção Audiovisual, 1979 Music Lab & Collab Música: "Altamira" - Ruspo Álbum: Esses Patifes [2013] Artista: Ruspo Selo: Um Distante Maestro Discos Ilustrações: Cauê Carazzai Gravado na estrada em Santos, Campinas e São Paulo (SP), Belo Horizonte (MG), Altamira e Belém (PA) e Campo Grande e Dourados (MS), entre 2010 e 2013.
