 SPECIAL SCREENINGS OF 'AT PLAY IN THE FIELDS OF THE LORD'
 TO BENEFIT RAINFOREST ACTION NETWORK
 UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Pictures, the Saul Zaentz Co. and Rainforest Action Network will host screenings of "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco on Dec. 3, 1991 for the benefit of the Amazon Campaign of the Rainforest Action Network.
 Based on Peter Matthiessen's prophetic 1965 novel, "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" is directed by Hector Babenco ("Kiss of the Spider Woman") and stars Tom Berenger, John Lithgow, Daryl Hannah, Aidan Quinn, Tom Waits and Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates. The film is an epic story of greed vs. idealism, as missionaries compete with mercenaries for the land -- and souls -- of Indians in the Brazilian rain forest. Producer Saul Zaentz, who received Oscars for Best Picture for "Amadeus" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," has devoted more than 20 years to bringing "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" to the screen.
 Tickets are currently available for all three screenings through the Rainforest Action Network (RAN). For a $50 donation, supporters receive general admission to the screening, a commemorative T-shirt, and a one-year membership in RAN. Those making a donation of at least $100 will receive priority seating, and will be invited to a pre-screening reception with special guests from the film. Supporters in this category will also take home a copy of the novel "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" signed by the author.
 For further information regarding tickets and invitations, call the Rainforest Action Network at 800-989-RAIN.
