Product Description


Beyond the Gates of Splendor: The savage killing of five missionaries on a remote strip of beach in the Amazon jungle captured the attention of the world. This award-winning documentary presents both personal accounts and archival footage of this incredible story of sacrifice and redemption. It not only follows the tragic deaths of these men but also the lives of their widows and children--especially those who would come to live among the Waodani tribe. Through such acts of love and forgiveness, a society known as the most violent ever recorded was transformed.

End of the Spear: This award-winning feature film offers a stirring journey deep into the Amazon jungle and even deeper into the human condition. Based on the true accounts of five missionaries speared to death by a stone-age tribe, the film weaves together the story of a bereaved son and the tribal leader who took part in the brutal killings. Ultimately, Steve Saint and Mincaye must confront the pain of the past and choose between revenge and reconciliation.

The Grandfathers A young man searches for identity among the stone-age tribe that had murdered his grandfather and then actually help raise his father. This documentary completes an inspiring trilogy that began with Beyond the Gates of Splendor and End of the Spear. By forming a unique bond with three of the Waodani tribesmen who took part in the killing, Jesse Saint learns profound lessons about himself, his heritage, and what might be his own legacy to pass on.

Dove Worldview:
This is a powerful film. The true story of missionaries who first drop gifts to the Waodani by plane, and then later land and make contact is a gripping example of literally laying down one's life for the gospel. Due to a misunderstanding, the Waodani spear the five missionaries who had arrived to befriend them. Mincayani spears Nathan Saint. Nathan Saint (aptly named) learned a few words of their native tongue from his son, and tells them as he dies he came to be their good friend. Mincayani is visibly touched and shaken by this dying man's last words. Nathan Saint's sister, Rachel, moves to the island to live with the Waodani and give them medical help and she, along with a slain missionary's wife, begin to win them over as she and subsequently others tell them of the love of God's son.

Without giving the ending away, Nathan's son Steve meets Mincayani later, only to learn that he is the man who murdered his father. The scenery, story-telling, acting, and the music are all top notch in this drama. I believe the score of this movie enhances the dramatic parts of the film. The film does have violence, with the spearing of the missionaries and others, but it is handled with quick cut-aways and the worst is the encounter with the missionaries as some blood is shown, but it makes the outcome of the film that much more powerful. The compelling message of this film overpowers the violence and this movie is Dove approved for ages twelve and older. Interestingly, the audience gets to meet the real Steve Saint and Mincayani at the end of the film.
