    This movie was shot in 16 mm film in the southwestern Brazilian rainforest, the Mata Atlântica, with a custom modified camera. Following strategies of structural film making, 16mm plays with the footage roll used to film it as constitutive base of its form and content. A 16 mm film standard roll of 200 feet (60.96 meters) gives an approximate duration of 5' 33" (333"). That means 1 meter of film is consumed every 5.46 seconds or 18.3 cm. every second. To make this work I modified a 16mm film camera with the help of the engineer Stefan Knauer: we built a special traveling car, replaced the camera engine and built a transmission system that allows the camera to move along a tensioned steel cable as a traveling rail while shooting the film. The special thing of this modification is that a single engine runs, simultaneously and to the same speed, the film on the reel and the camera along the cable. That is, the same engine runs and moves the camera along the dolly at a time, so that the two movements and the two "distances" are directly, mechanically and indivisibly connected to each other because of the mechanism: each meter of shot film correspond exactly to a meter advanced through the woods, and the speed of this movement corresponds to the speed the film achieved inside the camera. To film the movie a traveling cable was tensioned suspended about 3 meters above the forest soil: a perfectly straight line through the winding jungle – a sharp cut. The length of this rail was the same as the roll of film to be filmed with the traveling: for 61 meters of reel that were filmed, the camera advanced another 61 meters. The result is a continuous single take, a long shot traveling with constant speed through the jungle, going deeper and deeper inside it, for the duration of the roll of film, feet by feet . 16mm is both an essay on cinema and on the forest and the crossings that occur in it. A film about time and the nature of the creative act. An exercise of penetration that is not without psychological connotations. A tactile look. A conceptual and physical work. This structural analysis of the medium was made in the jungle because even today it is one of the ultimate depths and is from the impact felt entering the forest that the whole idea emerges. But this impact is not only physical or psychological: the Mata Atlântica rainforest is also, geopolitically, one of the densest places in the world. Since the time of the "discovery" to the "post"-colonial day of today, in the jungle happen a succession of conflicts: economic, ecological, geographic, human, scientific, historical, territorial, etc ... crossing each other, creating a network of relationships as complex as the geometry of the vines, branches and trunks, and so difficult to equilibrate as it is to penetrate its natural thickness.

      Música Carioca A Preguiça de Coleira (Bradypus torquatus) endêmica na Mata Atlântica, esta altamente ameaçada. O objetivo da Reserva Zoobotânica do Bicho Preguiça, liderado por Vera Lucia de Oliveira é recuperar preguiças apreendidas de caçadores e comerciantes de animais e doadas ao Centro pelo Ibama, Policia Federal, Corpo de Bombeiros e pessoas da comunidade. A Preguiça Comum está invadindo a área da Preguiça de Coleira por causa do alimento que ja não está encontrando na sua área por conta dessas plantações de eucaliptus que já estão também invadindo a área da Preguiça de Coleira. O objetivo do Centro liderado por Vera Lucia de Oliveira é recuperar preguiças apreendidas de caçadores e comerciantes de animais e doadas ao Centro pelo Ibama, Policia Federal, Corpo de Bombeiros e pessoas da comunidade. Lutemos para que se cumpra a lei e pela inmediata demarcaçao da area da mono-cultura do eucalipto de modo a evitar seu plantio indiscriminado em áreas de Mata Atlântica, destruindo matas e toda sua Biodiversidade. Contata: verinhaluz@ceplac.gov.br RESERVA ZOOBOTANICA DO BICHO PREGUIÇA Km 22 Rod. Ilheus/ Itabuna (73)32143228 El Perezoso de Collar (Bradypus torquatus), especie endémica de la Mata Atlántica, esta en gran peligro de extinción. El objetivo del Reserva Zoobotânica del Perezoso, liderado por Vera Lucia de Oliveira es recuperar Perezosos confiscados a los cazadores y traficantes de animales. El río Jequitinhonha separa la zona del Perezoso de Collar, es decir, desde Canavieiras hasta Salvador y Perezoso Común desde Belmonte hasta Teixeira de Freitas, Bahia. La superficie total donde puede vivir el Perezoso de Collar es Bahía, Espírito Santo y Río de Janeiro, sólo unas pocas áreas, porque la deforestación de toda esa zona es desastrosa por causa de las plantaciones de eucalipto y el pastoreo intensivo de ganado. El Perezoso Comun está invadiendo la zona del Perezoso de Collar debido a la falta de alimento en su área debido a estas plantaciones de eucaliptos que a su vez tambien están invadiendo la zona del Perezoso de Collar. El Bosque Atlántico es considerado por la comunidad científica mundial como uno de los ecosistemas más ricos en Biodiversidad del mundo, y el segundo más amenazada de extinción. Luchemos para que se cumpla la ley y por la demarcación inmediata del área del monocultivo de eucalipto para evitar la plantación indiscriminada en las zonas de la Mata Atlántica, con la destrucción de los bosques y toda su Biodiversidad.
