The Territory

dir. Alex Pritz / 2022 / Brasil, Denmark, USA / 86min.
”The Territory” focuses on the fight of the Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people against the encroaching deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon

”The Territory” focuses on the tireless fight of the Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people against the encroaching deforestation brought by illegal loggers and an association of non-native farmers in the Brazilian Amazon.

The film draws audiences deep into the Uru-eu-wau-wau community, while delivering unprecedented access to the other side of the conflict as loggers illegitimately clear land and a network of desperate farmers rally together, readying to colonize the protected rainforest. 

Darren Aronofsky (“The Black Swan”, “Requiem for a Dream”) is one of the film’s producers.
