IBAMA Prevfogo

A short film to honour and promote the work of a forest fire squad based in Nova Bandeirantes, Mato Grosso, Brazil. Every year during the dry season, human lit fires go out of control and spread through fields and forest. It is in part thanks to the dedication of these fire brigades that many fires are put out. These squads operate under the banner of IBAMA (Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente e dos Recursos Naturais Renováveis)
