Overview
Explore the mysterious AMAZON through the amazing IMAX® experience. AMAZON celebrates the beauty, vitality and wonder of the rapidly disappearing rain forest. Carrying the cumbersome IMAX cameras and other equipment, filmmakers overcame many difficulties to photograph this rarely seen tropical landscape and present it with all the visual power associated with IMAX. The filmmakers photographed native tribesmen untouched by Western civilization and discovered an awesome variety of animals and plant life. Narrated by Oscar®-winning* actress Linda Hunt, AMAZON follows a unique collaboration between an American scientist and a tribal shaman on a mission to find rare medical plants.

AMAZON was originally filmed in the giant-screen format and exhibited in IMAX and other giant-screen theaters. The video version of the film has been specialy mixed and mastered to produce an outstanding DTS Digital Surround and Dolby Digital 5.1 home theater experience.

*Best Supporting Actress; The Year of Living Dangerously, 1983
