Nigel Noble's documentary about the lives of the carvoeiros, the migrant workers who produce charcoal from the trees of the Brazilian rain forests, is based on an award-winning photographic essay, and that is how it is best appreciated.
An evocative, moving visual portrait that vividly illustrates the conditions under which these people must work, "The Charcoal People" is nonetheless repetitive and ultimately rather dull as it proceeds through its relatively brief 70 minutes.
Receiving its world theatrical premiere at New York's Screening Room, the film will find its true calling as a specialty item for educational situations.
The trees harvested from the forests are used in the production of charcoal for the steel industries around the world to manufacture cars, buildings, etc. While the ecological consequences of this are touched upon in the film, it is generally far more interested in depicting the exact nature of the process and exploring the lives of the workers who must endure highly difficult conditions for very modest wages. The people on display here range from a 76-year-old man who exhibits an impressive physical vigor -- his parents, he informs us, lived well into their hundreds -- to a 9-year-old child who, it's quite clear, has few options for his future.
As they perform their often hazardous jobs, which involves cutting down trees and burning them in large kilns, the workers recount the dangerous, difficult conditions that they must endure. Although several of the subjects are quite articulate (and some are quite prideful about their work), the film's real impact is visual; the superb cinematography all too vividly captures the beauty and harshness inherent in this assault on nature.
The composer, arranger and producer, João Nabuco, has already participated in various sound tracks, as those of the films Amores Possíveis and Pequeno Dicionário Amoroso. João is also musical director of the Sundance Festival.
