Documentary “The Dark Side of the Green”, about the conflict between Natives and farmers
Yesterday I published Mass suicide of Guarani-Kaiowá Natives, a post about the violence that is reducing dramatically the biggest Brazilian Native community. Today, Deep Brazil brings to you this well produced – though partial – independent documentary, “The Dar Side of the Green”, that gives a detailed account on the conflict behind the suicides, the confrontation of Natives and local sugar cane producers that supply the biofuel industry.
It’s a 2011 production with English captions, directed by journalists An Baccaert, Nico Muñoz and Cristiano Navarro. It has a few really strong scenes, such as an eviction (portrayed in the photo above) and the fascinating performance of two Native hip-hop groups, Fase Terminal and Bro’w (at 12:20).Tags: Guarani, Mato Grosso do Sul, Natives
