Grazing the Amazon is a groundbreaking documentary by director Marcio Isensee e Sa on the devastating effects of the cattle industry on the deforestation of the Amazon. Less than fifty years ago, in the 1970s, the rainforest was intact. Since then, a portion the size of France has disappeared, 66% of which transformed into pastures. Cattle ranching became an economic and cultural banner of the Amazon, forcing powerful politicians to defend it. In 2009, there was a game changer: the Public Prosecutor’s Office sued large slaughterhouses, forcing them to supervise cattle supplying farms. Join us Tuesday evening at 7:00 in the Parish Hall for this powerful film. Bring a friend! All screenings are free (donations gladly accepted) and at 12 West 11th Street — bring a friend!
