TRIBES ON THE EDGE follows filmmaker Céline Cousteau as she returns to the Brazilian
Amazon after a fateful email from Beto of the Marúbo tribe beckons her back to help tell his
people’s story. Céline ventures into the heart of the jungle to explore the health crises and the
threats to land and human rights of the Indigenous Peoples of the Vale do Javari, expanding the
view to how this is relevant to our own lives. From a history of invaders bringing devastating
diseases all the more relevant in our current global pandemic, to the ongoing illegal activities
including hunting, gold mining and deforestation, to the alarming dismantling of all protection of
their land and human rights by the Brazilian government. Much more than a narrative of tribal
reality in the Amazon, the film provides a perspective on how our future is interwoven with theirs
and with nature. The indigenous communities are fighting to protect their home, critical to the
ecological balance of our planet, and as a result...they protect us.
