The Pacification War in Amazonia

 

 

 

 

Cinéma du Réel, in partnership with Zarafa Films and with the support of CMC presents:

The Pacification War in Amazonia, Yves Billon, France, 1973, 16mm, color, 80 mins (Cannes Film Festival 1977 – Un Certain Regard)

In the 1970’s in Brazil, the construction of the Trans-Amazonian road and the discovery and the exploitation of mineral deposits led the multinational companies to expropriate the indian tribes living in Amazonia. The Indians, attracted by gifts and lured by “pacifiers” who spoke their language, saw themselves ejected from their territories and put in native reservations at the end of the process. They thus have become completely dependent on the civilised world
