Biased Information, 2 January 2017
Author: Alex Colina from United States

It's a beautiful documentary that looks at last remaining untouched tribes in the Amazon rainforest. I would have given this a 10 if it would have been an unbiased and informational documentary about these fascinating tribes. BUT! the first minute of introducing the film, they claimed these indigenous people as "terrorising local communities." So already it is planted the seed as these people being savages and barbaric. The rest of the documentary continues to support the idea 'civilized people' against them, the' indigenous people'. They really try to focus on tribe members confessing to murdering 'white people,' but this has NO comparison as to the murders that have happened and are still occurring from modern civilisation waiting their lands. This was heart breaking to see how these ancient tribes are currently being the evil ones. It's all backwards.
