Synopsis

Sister Dorothy Stang was a nun from Ohio who was seventy-three years old when she was murdered in Brazil. Stang was part of a group of Christian activists who were working with natives in the Brazilian rainforests to create sustainable agricultural projects to help the locals support themselves without damaging the environment. Stang and her colleagues were also helping native landowners reclaim land that had been stolen or taken from them under false pretenses by ranching and logging concerns. Stang's efforts to help Brazil's poor did not make her many friends among the wealthy and powerful, and when she was killed, many believed she was the victim of hired assassins working under the command of men wanting to protect their political and economic interests. Filmmaker Daniel Junge directed the documentary They Killed Sister Dorothy, which profiles the late Sister Stang and offers both evidence and informed opinion about who killed her and why. Narrated by Martin Sheen, They Killed Sister Dorothy was a prize-winner at the 2008 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
