The mini-documentary "Xingu, stories about forest products" chronicles forest production chains supported by the Amazon Fund, under the program “Sociobiodiversity Production Chains in Xingu”. The program was conducted by ISA and 12 partner organizations in the Xingu Basin, in the states of Mato Grosso and Pará, from 2014 to 2016.
Learn more about the Xingu Seed Network, the pequi-fruit oil produced by the Kisêdjê people, the Araguaia pulp factory and Terra do Meio chestnuts, oils and rubber. These forest products tell stories of the people who live in and from the forest, in an integrated and sustainable manner. They strengthen both the Amazon and the identity its dwellers.
