    Cameron Makes 3D Amazon Tribe Doco

    Cameron Makes 3D Amazon Tribe Doco

    James Cameron ("Avatar," "Titanic") will return to Brazil this year to make a 3D doco about indigenous people of the Amazon who oppose construction of a dam reports AFP.

    "I want to return to meet some of the leaders of the Xikrin-Kayapo tribe who invited me. I want to take a 3D camera to film how they live, their culture" says Cameron who has already come to the Amazon twice before and shot a short film about the tribe's resistance to the Xingu River dam and hydroelectric plant.

    The project could flood their tribal lands, though the government claims no indigenous land would be threatened. Construction on the project is slated to begin around late this year/early 2011.

    McDonald's eating up the Amazon Rainforest

    Meanwhile, the Xingu basin in the pristine heart of the forest is being turned into the regional waste drain, says the report.

    Home to 14 indigenous tribes, it is changing fast, says Ionaluka, a director of the Xingu Indigenous Land Association. "Every time I leave the reserve I do not recognise anything because the forest keeps disappearing," he says.

    Now, the reason why i made this thread:

    James Cameron does not mind to steal the land from the ''real'' Na'vi:


    Anti-Capitalist Movie Avatar Partners With McDonalds for Corporate Marketing Push

    While James Cameron's Avatar contains many anti-capitalism messages in its global warming alarmist push, the film has made some big corporate partnership deals with companies like McDonalds.

    McDonalds has been running ads co-branding with Avatar, has created Avatar “digital experiences”, and has featured Avatar toys in Happy Meals.

    Cameron said on the Today Show “[Greed] tends to destroy the environment.”

    McDonalds is allegedly very destructive to the environment, so Cameron isn’t really upholding the lessons of his own film.

    In 2006, Greenpeace accused McDonalds of accentuating the destruction of rainforests, by using soybeans grown in rainforest regions for animal feed.

    Feeding cows and providing the power to operate an international network of franchises requires a lot of energy. Treehugger reports that a single hamburger creates about 7 pounds of carbon emissions. Besides carbon, beef takes up grazing land, food, water and other resources. Environmentalists have estimated the water costs at 12,009 gallons per pound of beef.

    McDonalds isn’t the only corporate partner involved with Cameron’s $300 million production.

    The LG eXpo projector phone has also been running a co-branding campaign with the phone projecting an Avatar trailer.

    Cameron claims “Great wealth makes me uncomfortable,” and he has a track record of producing “quasi-Marxist epic[s],” as Newsweek described Titanic. Cameron himself said that Titanic was “holding just short of Marxist dogma.”

    Critic James Kendrick pointed out Titanic, Aliens and The Abyss as three Cameron films that include Marxist overtones.

    Certainly Avatar can be added to that list. Along with the global warming message—Popular Science calls it “every militant global warming supporter’s dream come true”—it has also been described as “blatant anti-military” and “anti-American.”

    The idea of the corporate partnership itself (or a $300 million movie) is a very capitalist idea in and of itself—made more so because McDonalds is so often targeted by radical critics for not being “socially responsible.”

    Apart from their alleged environmental impacts, McDonalds has been criticized for causing obesity, exploiting third-world countries, harming animals and mistreating labor. (A litany of their offenses can be found in this 1986 fact sheet produced by London Greenpeace (not affiliated with Greenpeace International).) McDonalds was voted among the top 10 least “socially or environmentally responsible companies,” according to a BBMG report released in March, 2009.

    The overall marketing budget for Avatar (apart from the often-quoted production budget) is $150 million.

    James Cameron said that much of the evil of the world “can be attributed to the concentration of wealth and power with a few,” and his movie is helping to increase that concentration among interested parties.

    He says that great wealth makes him uncomfortable. I hope he feels uncomfortable now.

    I'm not sure about Titanic being Marxist, because for the most part to me it seems to be a Romance aimed at teenage girls. Never really seen any hardcore doctrine in it.

    That being said Yes James Cameron, is both a hypocrite and a Marxist, because that is the IN Hollyweird thing and has been for at least the last century.

    Really I don't know why it surprises anyone to find out that the same corporation that the "So Called Experimentalist" are supposed to be protesting they are also in multimillion dollar business deals with.

    Movies are all BS anyway to be consumed by the ignorant populace. They don't have to keep their convictions, because in their imaginary world they make it up as they go along.

    Yup, i don't see any marxist elements in Titanic, Aliens and The Abyss.

    Anyway, he is a typical Champagne socialist.
