THE MANÚ PROJECT sheds light on native Amazonian communities who live life amid invisible fences in the strictly regulated Manu National Park. Our team of photographers, journalists, filmmakers and anthropologists will uncover the stories of people struggling to save their rich culture as park restrictions pressure youth to abandon everything.
Presented by The Manu Project, The Trees Don't Talk Anymore takes us deep inside the Peruvian Amazon to a place called Manu National Park, where a hidden culture is navigating an ever changing landscape of modernization.
"There is a deficiency of our youth. The older generation soon will leave this Earth as we are not made out of rock...Modernization has intimidated us to think that our knowledge has no value... I ask the world and all of humanity, do not ruin us with modernization. Respect our identity and take our knowledge seriously."
