James Cameron to make 3D movie on Amazon tribesSeptember 6th, 2010 - 10:55 pm ICT by IANS
London, Sep 6 (IANS) Filmmaker James Cameron is planning to make a 3D movie highlighting the plight of indigenous people who will be uprooted by the construction of a dam on the Amazon river.
The “Avatar” director is fighting to ban the construction of the Belo Monte hydroelectric plant on the Xingu river, an Amazon tributary, but his protests failed to keep President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva from approving plans last week.
Contactmusic.com reports that Cameron now plans to show his support by shooting a movie about the lives of the local tribes.
“I want to return to meet some of the leaders of the Xikrin-Kayapo tribe who invited me. I want to take a 3D camera to film how they live, their culture,” he said.
