This Peruvian animation is set in the depths of the Amazon, home to a multitude of fearsome creatures but also to a thirteen-year-old girl named Ainbo. She and her tribe are settled on the back of a powerful spirit, Turtle Motelo Mama but one day she discovers that her home is under threat, not only by logging companies and illegal mining but also by the Yacuruna, a dark malevolent force that appears like black smoke through the forest. Disconnected from their past, the tribe have unfortunately given up on old legends, so it is up to Ainbo to step forward and save her home with the help of her two spirit guides, a tapir and an armadillo. This original adventure explores eco themes and issues affecting nature globally whilst also telling a tale all about believing in yourself.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
