(Feat Doc/ Brazil/ 75 min) Dir. Marcos Colon
Beyond Fordlândia presents an environmental account ninety years after Henry Fords Amazon experience. In 1927 the Ford Motor Company attempted to establish rubber plantations on the Tapajós River, a primary tributary of the Amazon. The film addresses the recent transition from failed rubber to successful soybean cultivation for export, and its implication for land usage.
