Amazonimations (2019)


Camilla Morelli, University of Bristol, 2019

Amazonimations is a collection of three animated short films (total length: 7 minutes) that were scripted, narrated and illustrated by different generations of Matses people in Peru – and produced in collaboration with an indigenous artist and a professional animator. The films depict aspects of traditional lifestyle in the rainforest; children’s views of animal life; and the challenges faced by young migrants who moved from the forest to the city.
