Alo, alo Amazonia
For over 50 years the radio program “Alo, Alo Amazonia” has been relaying messages between isolated communities on the riverbanks of the Amazon. The film immerses us in the everyday life of the Amazon people, characterised by messages of all kinds – travel arrangements, birthday greetings, messages of love and unpaid debts. “Alô, alô Amazônia” introduces us to the people and places behind these messages.
