It is composed by an interactive documentary, a 30 min documentary, journalistics investigations and case study by NGOs.
The interactive documentary reveals the story of characters along the road of the illegal trade of Amazonian gold in the five countries. Through testimonies of illegal minors, human trafficking victims, indigenous, researchers, and authorities, this project shows how the illegal gold trade is carried out in one of the most biodiverse areas of the world, and why efforts to end the illegal gold trade need to be amplified.
