The Burning Season (1994)

Sonia Braga as "Regina de Carvalho"

Based on real events, this film recounts the story of Chico Mendes (Raul Julia), a laborer in the Brazilian Amazon who rebels against his employers. Aware that workers are being exploited, Mendes attempts to unionize his compatriots for better wages and conditions. Since developers aim to cut away vast swaths of the rain forest in order to make the area more accessible for industry, Mendes decides to make a stand for the environment as well. But Mendes' activism makes him a target.
