0 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Magic of Words October 4 By FATHER  JOSEPH ZILIAK Associate Publisher The opening scene of the movie "The Mis- sion" shows a person lashed to a simple cross dramatically going aver a magnificent waterfall. We find out that it is a Jesuit missionary. Later in the film, a newly converted soldier of fortune turned Jesuit candidate for the priesthood labori- ously drags his old clothing in a net as he climbs alongside the waterfall. At the top, the rope connecting the signs of the old way of life is dramatically cut by his Je- suit superior. Thus is signified the loosening of the burden of the past. The film continues to por- tray the marvelous work of the missionaries that is eventually doomed to failure. The old ways of the indigenous people return. The site used for the film was the Iguassu Falls that loop some two kilometers in the midst of a nationa] forest preserve at the spot where Ar- gentina, Brazil and Paraquay come together. The scene is magnificent from the air, and overpowering as one walks alongside and nearby. The camera angles in the film enhanced the glory of the natural surroundings.
