Transamazonica - Trailer

Rezapakravan
Rezapakravan
More than 20,000 people have climbed Mount Everest…12 people have even walked on the Moon…but only 4 humans have ever survived cycling the full length of the remote and hostile Trans-Amazonian Highway.
Adventurer and film-maker Reza Pakravan joins journalist Phillippa Stewart to investigate the perils faced by the Amazon, and to experience the greatest rainforest on earth in a unique and breath-taking voyage along the Transamazonian Highway. Travelling the road by bicycle and the river by boat, they discover the fragility of ‘the lungs of the planet’ and the toilsome lives of those who call it home.
Fascinated by the roads less travelled, when Reza learns about the Transamazonian Highway he is determined to ride it. 4,000km long, both remote and hostile, the road symbolises the occupation of the world’s last great virgin forest, and is notoriously problematic to traverse. A single 10 minute rainstorm can turn the road into a river of mud: tough for the hardiest 4x4, and almost impossible for a bicycle. It is exactly the kind of road Reza craves for his next adventure.
