At the mouth of the Amazon River, a murder trial is taking place. The victim - Sister Dorothy Stang, a 73-year-old Catholic nun from Dayton, Ohio - was shot six times at point blank range. The events that led to her death, and the trials that follow, reveal the larger battle being fought for the future of the rainforest.

Filmmakers Daniel Junge and Henry Ansbacher gained unprecedented access to both sides of the conflict and to the courtroom. Produced by Academy Award winner Nigel Nobel and narrated by Martin Sheen, this gripping documentary follows the real-life drama at the trials of Dorothy's killers, while exploring the conflicts in the Amazon that led to that fateful day.

Review

Riveting, vivid stuff... remarkable courtroom footage. So captivating it's almost hard to believe. --The Hollywood Reporter

Impresses and enthralls, balancing moral outrage and courtroom melodrama in a documentary filled with the sort of colorful characters one usually encounters only in fictional crime stories. --Joe Leydon, Variety

A riveting courtroom drama set against the combustible backdrop of the decimated rain forest, with a dramatic courtroom turnabout that blows everything that's come before out of the water. --Austin Chronicle

This is one of the most timely films about a woman who is an environmental saint. Her life is a testimony to the interconnectedness between humans and our earth, and the filmmaker presents her witness with lucidity and grace. They Killed Sister Dorothy

By NYFB on February 14, 2013
Format: DVD
THEY KILLED SISTER DOROTHY documentary is in Portuguese so you need to read the caption. Covers majority of the legal court trials so you get to see the judicial system of Brazil in action. What is amazing to me is that this doc did not get the support that it should have which is very confusing since it is about offering the poor indigenous people who are born on that land the opportunity to live a simple although a hard working life, and meantime saving the precious old growth forest which is so essential to this planet earth and every one of us on this planet earth... Amazing.

I bought this video because Sister Dorothy was a first cousin to my mom, and I wanted to learn more about her. The DVD came very fast, excellent condition.
