"LOTS & LOTS to share with you on the making of this film in the more than 130 hours of making of recorded by my dear crew. It has been a long, challenging and sometimes dangerous journey because of the nature of the location, filming along the rivers and in the jungle...
(Some of the first rubber soldiers i filmed in a small village in the year 2000, when i first started my research for this film)
This film is an old and dear dream of mine, and I always knew that it was going to be just a matter of time, for me to tell this story. When i lived in the jungle, I kept on dreaming that one day i would make it out of my little village and would be able to do it somehow. But for a little jungle girl attending school for the first time at the age of twelve, living in a very poor and small jungle village in the Amazon, that dream had to wait. So in the year 2000 i went to Brazil and did my first trip into the Amazon rivers searching for subjects. And there, i found more than i bargained for...
This project has been an obstinate quest, to which and in which, i have given my all, because i felt compelled deeply and personally.
I invite you to come with us into this journey.... so grab your sunshades and your mosquito repellents and stand by ...it's going to be wild." - Eva Neide
Please help us to bring justice for the Rubber Soldiers by signing this petition! It could influence the Congress to pass a bill that would grant their so long waited and deserved pension as war veterans.
