Storyline

The Amazon is the biggest river on Earth. Only little of plant and animal life along its banks is known to man. And there are many secrets known to the tribe shamans of which we never heard. During a journey of one of those shamans down the river from one of its wells, who meets a western scientist traveling up the river from the sea, the audience experiences a huge variety of landscapes, animals (pink dolphins, for example), plants and people.

Trivia

Said the film's composer, Alan Williams, in a 2001 interview, the film originally had a narration for the end of the film. "One of the best phone calls I have received was from the dubbing stage of Amazon. The director called to say that they were dumping the narration for the last 3 minutes of the film and were just playing my music. That never happens with a feature." See more »

awesome
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this IMAX was the opitomy of amazing. eye-popping visuals and information, Plotkin gives a detailed description of his line of work. just as fascinating or even better than his book "tales of a shamans apprentice", this IMAX will make you want to visit the amazon and join Mark on one of his expeditions. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for an interesting film to watch and to be wowed again by Mark Plotkin.

It's great for the whole family. I can't tell you how many times I've watched it, but every time gives me another reason to go visit South America. Not only is the IMAX great, but the soundtrack also is very soothing.

The IMAX contains jaw-dropping scenes such as a baby sleeping on a mammoth lily-pad while staying totally dry.

Plotkin has done it again.
