The Territory

Directed by Alex Pritz & Alex Pritz

In the Brazilian rainforest, a battle is being waged between the last of the indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau tribe and the farmers who – with President Bolsonaro at their backs – are slowly eating into their otherwise protected territory. But young activist and leader Bitate has no intention of giving up without a fight. He mobilises an army of self-taught journalists to patrol the jungle and catch the land grabbers in action. With a video camera as their only weapon, Bitate and his men risk their lives to stop the clearing of the forest before it’s too late.

The Territory is a dramatic documentary charting the battle between right and wrong, and a compelling tale of courage and resistance.
