unbiased account of drastic changes and the impact on affected population
2 September 2012 | by (Montana) – See all my reviews

this is a warm felt, yet unbiased, account of the drastic changes faced by populations depending on the Amazon rain forest for their livelihood. They see what they have always known to be there disappear: the forest they call home, their way of life, their values, their traditions. This is a voice for those who have no choice. I am glad they have this voice.... I find myself watching it over and discovering more the second and third time around. The story line with political back ground information is focused on one area in this vast forest, but brings to life the struggles faced by most likely many others.... It is painful to watch this film.... I felt myself wanting to stop the trees from falling, yell at the people in their pig machines to leave the beautiful forest and the life in contains alone. But greed is so powerful many forget who pays the price, and watching the story unfold brings home the powerlessness of the people who call the Amazon their home. This film succeeds in bringing the loss of the rain forests to life in all its tragedy for the people of the Amazon. I love the idea to revisiting the children after 15 years to tell what happened........
