“The story is taking place in the north-east brazilian countryside area.
This place has a remainder of the Mata Atlantica, which was once the second largest
forest of South America and which has only about 6% left of its original size.
The rivers taking their source in these wooded hills can supply water to the villages
nearby. However, deforestation is accelerating, and water begins to fail.
I was interested to talk about the everyday life of the people living there, small
stories which are taking place in this remote area”
