PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This movie actually takes place in Brazil, and chronicles the true story of the struggle of Chico Mendes to halt the destruction of the rainforest. One of the last films Raul Julia made before his death, this film is an excellent illustration of the conflict between development and conservation.
While the film carries no rating for the classroom, there is one very brief (3 sec) snippet of an inappropriately clothed woman, if you are quick with a file folder you can cover the screen or edit out the scene. Its worth the effort as the film is excellent and serves as a great discussion opener to the plight of tropical nations as they destroy their habitat in order to feed their children. Movie guide contains 26 chronologically ordered questions and several topics for follow up. Questions are in English as is the film.
