They Killed Sister Dorothy is a documentary on the killing of 73-year-old Catholic nun and activist Sister Dorothy Stang in February 2005, in the state of Pará (Brazilian rain forest), where she, for 30 years, fought along with environmentalists and the underprivileged local communities against the exploitation of powerful loggers and landowners. A great example of why I liked working with the team at Bluecadet: socially relevant subjects framed by incredible design.
