AmazonExplore the mysterious Amazon through the amazing IMAX (R) experience and celebrate the beauty, vitality and wonder of this magical rain forest, which is disappearing at an alarming rate.

Filmmakers overcame many difficulties to photograph this rarely seen tropical landscape and present it with all the visual power associated with IMAX.

Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Linda Hunt, this unique collaboration between an American scientist and a tribal shaman on a mission to find rare medicinal plants will amaze and astound you.

This is one of the very best IMAX films ever produced, and one of the best documentaries- in ANY format- on the Amazon ecosystem in all its glory. It is simply unsurpassed in its depiction of the awe-inspiring variety and scale of these legendary forests; all that's missing is the heat & humidity.

Rather than the usual stupefying one-note narratives of conventional IMAX films, this one has real stories about fascinating people. The photography is stunning, the music is excellent, and the price is unbelievably fair. You can't miss with this one.
