The Mission

Deep in the jungles of South America two men bring God to a native tribe, one a Jesuit Missionary, the other a reformed slave trader. After years of struggle together they find themselves faced with an agonising choice: obey Papal dictate and abandon the mission, or remain to defend the Indians they cherish.

Winner of an Academy Award, three BAFTAs, two Golden Globes and the Palme d'Or at the 1986 Festival de Cannes.
