Comments: 19 x 25 cm, first edition, printed in China by Oceanic Graphic, printed on woodfree paper, box contains reproductions of the original poster, graphic novel, insert with reproductions of articles and critiques about the production, photograph of the director

This book was produced using stills from super 8 movies filmed by cinematographer Jorge Bodanzky in Manaus and along the Transamazônica Highway, which served as the basis for the 1974 movie IRACEMA, UMA TRANSA AMAZÔNICA, co-directed by Orlando Senna.

Besides the book, the box contains smallscale reproductions of the original poster and graphic novel that were launched during the movie’s release. It also includes an insert with reproductions of articles and critiques about the production, and a photograph of the director in action. The images in this book were extracted from Jorge Bodanzky’s super 8 movie, and kindly ceded by the Instituto Moreira Salles for this current edition.

"After Robert Flaherty, the Americans began to call filmmakers those who are, at the same time, producers and cameramen. There are in total some twenty of us around the world, from Ricky Leacock to John Marshall, From Vittorio De Sica to Eduardo Olmi, from Michel Brault to Jorge Bodanzky. From the first image we recognize ourselves in the irreplaceable gaze of those who, behind the camera, are the first spectators of the film they create, like those illuminated storytellers of oral tradition who invent history as they report it…" Jean Rouch, 1983

"The Film begins at the port of Bélem and ends upon the highway that wounds the forest and makes way for logging companies, slash-and-burn operations, slave labor and prostitution. IRACEMA, catching a ride along the Trans-Amazonian, is symbolic: a woman who comes from poverty and strays into a region of wealth; wealth that is almost undiscovered, although often commented upon and discussed. Which is what makes the human dimension equally or more important than the military regime’s developmental delirium." Milton Hatoum, 2007
