About Vale


Vale sponsors Amazon Adventure 3D Film


Amazon Adventure is a film sponsored by Vale and traces the extraordinary journey of naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates – the most influential scientist you’ve never heard of – who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his then controversial theory of natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest.

The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into the fascinating world of animal mimicry, the astonishing phenomenon where one animal adopts the look of another, gaining an advantage to survive.

Amazon Adventure, sponsored by Vale and made by SK Films, will be shown in Museums and IMAX cinemas in more than 40 countries across the world starting later this year and will run for approximately 5 years. Its official commercial launch in Brazil will be in March 2018. Amazon Adventure was produced using the Brazilian Audiovisual Law – ANCINE, which allows for Brazilian Film/television producers to raise funds from private and state-owned companies, like Vale, who can invest part of their income tax obligations in Brazilian audiovisual productions. ANCINE is designed to help develop a sustainable and competitive audiovisual industry in Brazil, working across production, distribution and exhibition.
