Back in 2005, Dorothy Stang died thousands of miles away, in the Amazon jungle where the 73-year-old nun had spent decades trying to help poor settlers and save the Brazilian rainforest. But her story hit home with local filmmakers Daniel Junge and Henry Ansbacher, who followed Denver resident David Stang as he traveled to Brazil to get justice for his murdered sister. The result, the documentary They Killed Sister Dorothy, is both a gripping courtroom drama and a cautionary environmental tale. The movie will screen at the King Center on the Auraria campus at 1 p.m. Saturday, November 22, as part of the Starz Denver Film Festival; director Junge and producer Ansbacher will be on hand to discuss their award-winning film, which will air on HBO in January. Tickets are $9 for Denver Film Society members, $10 for students and seniors, and $11 general admission; for details, go to www.denverfilm.org.
