An ordered film, a classical documentary about the beauties and the natural wealth of the Amazon region. We can consider typically glauberian: the lyric ravish...展开ment of the takes, and the well characteristic insistence on the nationalistic and progressive concerns of the director, with the concrete presence of the image of working people, the urban sequences, and of the product, the merchandise. Glauber Rocha was commissioned to film the beauties of Amazonia. The result is very "Glauberian" in the lyrical treatment of the shots.
In 1966, while he was waiting for the beginning of his new motion picture, Glauber Rocha produced two short length documentaries as follows: "Amazonas, Amazonas" and "Maranhao 66"; the plot of the last one referring to the entrance into office of the then Governor Jose Sarney. The next film, "Terra em Transe" got also distinction and prizes of the international review. Before his third long-length motion picture, he had a new experience, "Cancer"; and then, with the film "O Dragao da Maldade Contra o Santo Guerreiro" he got the prize of the best motion picture director of Cannes Festival, in 1969.
