Summary
Directed by a Brazilian, Octavio Bezerra, Halting the Fires gives a socio/political framework to the devastation of the Amazon. Here, an area larger than the Netherlands is being burned each year. The Brazilian government, through Operation Amazon, has actually been supporting the exploitation of the natural resources. Many of the destructive activities, such as cattle ranching, are not economically viable without the subsidies the government provides. The film focuses on each of the groups - ranchers, miners, rubber tappers, loggers, Indians, and long term settlers - and shows how their activities affect the environment. It also documents the lawlessness that has characterized life on the jungle frontier
