Amazon Sisters
A film by Anne-Marie Sweeney
England, 1992, 60 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99222
AMAZON SISTERS portrays the vision and strength of women surviving in the hotly contested Amazon rainforests. While international attention has focused on saving the rainforests, considerably less attention has been paid to the plight of the human inhabitants of Amazonia. Women are at the frontline of the struggle to save their environment and to rebuild a region suffering the effects of inappropriate development. “A film which beautifully expresses the strength, humor and ability of the women of the Amazon Region. It sharply reminds us, however, that simply feeling romantic about rainforests isn’t enough. The need for serious support for both the environment and the health and safety of the people there is made abundantly clear.” —Margaret Prosser, National Women’s Secretary Transport and General Workers Union.


    “By far the best footage for putting women and grassroots development firmly into the center of environment issues.”
    Sue Johnson

    “An immensely moving film.”
    Theresa Hayter
    Author, Aid as Imperialism and The Creation of World Poverty
