The vanishing rainforests are one of the most important guardians of our planet. But the global climate is already collapsing.
Davi Kopenawa says the white man caused this problem. He is a shaman and an internationally known leader of the Yanomami, an indigenous tribe in the Brazilian rainforest. Davi travels the world to talk about “xawara”, the bad smoke that kills his people.
Not so long ago, Anne Ballester came back to France after she fled western civilisation to live with the Yanomami for 25 years. While her friend Davi is relentlessly speaking up for his people, far outside his beloved forest, she is preparing to return to the heart of the Amazon. A new wave of attacks against their land and culture takes place, so Anne wants to stand by the Yanomami, explaining them what is happening.
Worldwide, politicians deny the reality of the changes. Davi believes the sky is falling down on our heads, crushing everything. Anne thinks he could be right.
