LOS ANGELES/SAO PAULO, JUNE 18, 2019 — Taking an unconventional approach to raising awareness about threats to the Amazon rainforest, Globo TV and Maria Farinha Films joined forces to produce an action drama thriller series, Aruanas, which will debut in over 150 countries, subtitled in 11 different languages, on July 2 on aruanas.tv, a platform powered by Vimeo.
A fictional scripted series, about three idealistic women who set up an NGO to investigate the suspect activities of a mining company operating in the Amazon rainforest, Aruanas is deeply rooted in reality. Greenpeace served as technical collaborator and MFF was responsible for the social impact of the campaign garnering support from UN Environment along with 22 other NGOs around the world, including Amnesty International, WWF-Brazil, Global Witness, UN Women, Open Society Foundations, Instituto Betty & Jacob Lafer, Rainforest Foundation and more. Its mission is to warn against the global environmental crisis and promote the appreciation and protection of the extraordinary work of activists.
