About the Film
Jaguaretê – Avá – Pantanal in Flames (Dir: Lawrence Wahba) - Wildlife filmmaker Lawrence Wahba brings the viewer inside the ecological disaster caused by the worst forest fires in the history of the Pantanal, a natural world heritage site in the film he 'wishes he shouldn't have to make'.
While Brazil faces the pandemic damages and government neglect to the environment, Wahba bring us to hell, showing the efforts of firefighters, veterinarians, researchers, villagers and volunteers to save animal lives and protect the biome.
Through jaguars, sacred animals to most Central and South America’s original people traditions, the film adopts an holistic vision to denounce the tragedy, investigate its causes and learn if it could be avoided.
CONTENT WARNING: Please be aware that this film contains images of animal carcasses and burnt animals.
This film was selected as part of Wildscreen's Official Selection 2022 and also received the Sustainability Merit due to the outstanding work of the filmmakers to raise funds for local vet surgeries, firefighting services and benefit the environment and species which are the subject of the film.
