An intrepid visit to the Amazon

This 30-minute documentary for Sky Arts 1HD follows celebrity Lily Cole as she visits the Amazon for the first time to direct a short film used to educate people in the UK about the plight of the rainforests.

The documentary is intimate, and deeply personal, as Cole experiences the pressure of creating a film for the first time while exploring a new world. Cole speaks candidly as she explores the rugged terrain and meets the villagers whose lives depend on the forest. There is no glamour, just the stark realities of life and what needs to be done to preserve it.
