4.0 out of 5 stars Sad 17 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although the untimely death of Sister Dorothy was a great sadness especially to her devoted brother, this documentary is memorable to me more for its depiction of modern day Brazil than anything else. Of course justice is never guaranteed at any time even in the most civilised nations and Brazil is very much a nation in development split between the very rich and the very poor. Worth watching alongside Manda Bala to get an insight into a nation that will soon be a power to be reckoned with and also just to see the bizarre performance of the defence legal team. It's a hoot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Concept... 14 Feb 2013
By NYFB - Published on
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.

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

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.
