The Burning Season

Show Summary

The Burning Season was directed by John Frankenheimer and released in 1994. The semi-biographical plot centers around Chico Mendes (Raul Julia), a Brazilian man who works deep in the rainforest, tapping rubber. When the government partners with a private development firm to build new roads and ranches, and selects part of the rainforest for razing, Mendes organizes a powerful grassroots protest that resonates to the highest levels of government. As Mendes quickly learns, the greedy government will stop at nothing to achieve its goals - not even violence.
