Synopsis
'Countdown by the River Xingu - the Fight for the World’s Green Lung' tells the story of resistance against Belo Monte, the world’s  third largest dam largest dam, situated at the river Xingu in Brazil’s Amazon region. This long-term observation portrays the use of brute force and the collusion between international companies and the government by which this large-scale project was pushed through. It is a casebook study of the ongoing destruction of the world’s green lung. It is also about the people who fought this project. One of them is the Catholic bishop Dom Erwin Kräutler, whom we also accompanied during the Vatican’s Amazon Synod in October 2019.
