Flyers over Amazonia
Austria , 2008, 90 min, color

Flying as a dream and a passion, a job and a fate. That’s the story of pilots Nilton and Fernando, hoboes of the air. They fly over Amazonia, the largest river region on the planet and its greatest forest, both a miracle of creation and a target of deforestation.
Amazonia is portrayed in brilliant bird’s-eye-view images, through authentic characters and their stories, actors, the pilots’ voices, their thoughts concerning flying, fact and invention. A film that maintains a balance between realism and poetry, everyday life and dreams, combining them to pull the viewer into this world. An invitation to fly along.
