Sundance Award-Winning Doc About the Indigenous Fight to Protect Their Land in Brazil is Now Streaming on Disney+
From the Uru-eu-wau-wau Community, First-Time Feature Filmmaker Alex Pritz and Award-Winning Producers Sigrid Dyekjær and Darren Aronofsky
THE TERRITORY provides an immersive on-the-ground look at the tireless fight of the Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people against the encroaching deforestation brought by illegal settlers and an association of non-native farmers in the Brazilian Amazon. With awe-inspiring cinematography showcasing the titular landscape, and richly textured sound design, the film takes audiences deep into the Uru-eu-wau-wau community, and provides unprecedented access to the settlers illegitimately clearing land and a network of desperate farmers advocating for access to colonize the protected rainforest.
Partially shot by the Uru-eu-wau-wau people, the film relies on verité footage, captured over three years, as the community risks their lives to set up their own news media team in the hopes of exposing the truth.
