Inflated Jungle. The souls of the jungle
In search of solving the riddle posed by a disturbing suicidal trend among the indigenous youth of the Colombian Amazon, filmmaker Alejandro Naranjo goes into the jungle in search of clues.
It is not difficult to find some contradictions. As globalization impacts even these small and remote communities, ancestral identity fades and so does the sense of belonging to the place. The young people themselves show us their dilemmas.
