In March 2006, the team for the Navegar Amazônia project left the Jandiá Channel in Macapá, bound for Belém. On board a regional boat, adapted with a modern multimedia laboratory, were the project team and thirty persons, including musicians and filmmakers. The objective was, along the way, to offer workshops in music, cinema, photography, video and art to the population visited on the river's edge. The documentary is a record of the interaction between the guests and the local population. The Navegar Amazônia project captures and conveys contents of the Amazon in a unique way: from the heart of the forest and from the river to the world.
