Film Synopsis:

“Pureza” tells the powerful story of Pureza Lopes Loyola, a mother on a relentless quest to find her missing son in the vast expanse of the Amazon. Her journey takes a harrowing turn when she secures a job on a farm, only to discover the cruel and inhumane treatment of enslaved workers. Confronted with these brutal realities, Pureza faces the daunting challenge of not only finding her son but also escaping to alert the authorities to the atrocities she has witnessed.

Based on true events, the film masterfully highlights the complex issues of deforestation, crime, and modern-day slavery through the deeply personal and inspiring narrative of a mother’s love and resilience. Pureza Lopes Loyola has since become an emblematic figure in the fight against forced labor, symbolizing hope and justice in the face of adversity.
