End of the Spear

In the 1950s, a group of Christian missionaries went to Ecuador in order to reach the violent revenge-based Waodani people. Five of the men were speared to death, but the families of those men decided to carry on the work and lived within the tribe. Told from the perspective of Steve Saint, who was just a boy when his father was killed; and Mincayani, one of the tribesmen who killed the missionaries, this is a profound and remarkable film. Director Jim Hanon previously told the same story in the documentary 'Beyond the Gates of Splendor', based on the book by missionary's wife, Elisabeth Elliot.
