Another must watch documentary! It presents very serious facts about Belo Monte dam, the biggest and most polemical construction going on in Brazil today. This is responsible film making, focusing on the Xingu River in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, where indigenous peoples are being encroached upon, once again, as big corporations driven by greed have began construction of a destructive dam that will displace thousands of people, while changing the course of nature. What is happening in Xingu represents the enormous disrespect upon nature and cultures, as well as the irreversible harm mega-projects pose on our planet. Take action at amazonwatch.org.
