Bishop on a Boat Trip - Don Erwin Kräutler

Bodyguard und Brevier - Mit Bischof Kräutler am Amazonas

When Erwin Kräutler became Bishop of Altamira in the Amazon, his colleagues advised him that he would be expected to wear the insignia of Episcopal power, the mitre, ring and bishop's gown. But the bishop from the Austrian province of Vorarlberg decided not to set himself apart from his fellow men and exchanged his «hat» for simple jeans and t-shirts. However, not everyone appreciates his approach. The fact that he advocates the rights of the indigenous people and campaigns against the destruction of the Amazon region is a thorn in some people's sides. Erwin Kräutler's commitment has seen him arrested, tortured and threatened with death on several occasions. Nevertheless, his support for the indigenous people was recognised on 6th December 2010 with an alternative Nobel prize. This documentary accompanies the Bishop on a pastoral visit to the furthest-flung corner of Brazil.
