A Simple Review on "Children of the Amazon"
20 January 2013 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

After the movie "Children of the Amazon" my perception of what is real and what media shows us is extremely different. Though I had only learned about the destruction of Amazon as a place, I realized that it is a destruction of civilizations, cultures, truth, innocence and freedom. When I look at my projects of life, my dreams and my reality I thought that caring about my life was trouble enough. Now, I see people who sacrifice lots of things to have an education, to preserve their identities and to fight for what is right (in terms of being a human, not a machine that buys, sells and manipulates other people, and has this constant hunger that is never satisfied or simply a robot that only obeys what the "superiors" order). Seeing that film made me see how it is important to preserve what has been there longer before I came to the world, it is about helping others and see the reality with my own eyes, not simply seeing it through someone's point of view, it is about being curious and brave enough to express my opinion and, especially, listen to the others'. I saw lives being determined by others, I saw families being destroyed and I saw a fight being pacified by killing and suffering because of a simple and yet most desired piece of a green paper and I see the legacy and work of Chico Mendes being carried throughout these years, with the same purpose: Allow his people and family live in peace and with the same lifestyle of the ancestors.
