Summary
This documentary chronicles recent political events in the Brazilian Amazon. Beginning with the assasination of Chico Mendes in 1988 and ending with the massacre of Yanomami Indians in 1993, this five year journey provides an illuminating perspective on the volatile changes of this era. Besides documenting events, O'Connor analyzes the complex interaction between semi-isolated indigenous societies and "outsiders."
