Movie Info

Sister Dorothy Stang was a nun from Ohio who was seventy-three years old when she was murdered in Brazil. Stang was part of a group of Christian activists who were working with natives in the Brazilian rainforests to create sustainable agricultural projects to help the locals support themselves without damaging the environment. Stang and her colleagues were also helping native landowners reclaim land that had been stolen or taken from them under false pretenses by ranching and logging concerns.

It's riveting stuff, painting a vivid picture of just what kind of corrupt system Dorothy Stang lost her life opposing.

An engrossing documentary on the life and work of Amazonian activist Sister Dorothy Stang and the trial of those involved in her murder in 2005.

... at its heart, this is really a story about the wealthy versus the poor, and about an activist trying to protect a natural resource from those who would destroy it for profit.
