Every year on the last 3 days of June an exotic festival is held on an island in the middle of the Amazon rain forest along the banks of the mighty river. It is called Boi Bumba and it's not like anything you've ever seen before.
The island of Parintins divides into two camps, Caprichoso (blue) and Garantido (red) to outdo each other in festival energy and colorful events depicting the amazing splendor of the tropical forest that surrounds and defines everyone there.
This piece was filmed over those 3 nights in June of 2008.
