DEEP FOREST

The jungle of Colombia, the simple, steadfast natives of the deep forest, at a time when the growing awareness of their exploitation and their rights extends over the countryside. In particular this is the story of Luis, man of peace and father of several children, who- though exposed to the revolutionary cendict of the big city, returns to the forest determined to accomplish enlightenment for his village by quieter measures. With his brother, Luis is robbed in the city when they go to market their goods; he has trouble with the police, the politices, the military, and in particular with his enemy, Chief Montero. When his brother is killed, his nephew taken, Luis swears revenge, only to be held guilty - though actually innocent -- when Montero is killed. After five years, he returns, a hero. Distinguished by simplicity, sympathy. Limited in appeal.
