It's a hammock world

Diógenes Leal, noted cinematographer from Belém, collaborated with Professor Jim Bogan from the University of Missouri (and member of the Missouri/Pará Partners of the Americas) on a documentary film entitled, Hammock Variations. He sums up the significance of the hammock in the Amazon in the following statement: “Everything happens in a hammock—from before we are born through the arc of our life, til our friends carry us to the bone yard—It all happens in a hammock.”

Hammock Variations won the audience award at the Third Brazilian Film Festival of Belém with 5,000 people voting. Relaxing in a hammock at Bosque Santa Lúcia is Jeremy Campbell's wife, Maddy.
