Synopsis

An immersion into the Amazon rainforest that will make your blood boil. The Uru-eu-wau-wau people watch as a network of farmers with Bolsonaro's support destroy their territory to create agriculture fields. The impunity with which the aggressors cut down the trees and burn the forests clashes with the bravery shown by young Bitaté and Neidinha. Together they form an indigenous defence group with the video camera as an indestructible weapon. Shocking images, dramatic sequences and high doses of courage to stand up to the oppressors. The struggle of the Uru-eu-wau-wau people becomes an icon against the abuse of power and the destruction of the planet. Sundance Film Festival Audience Award 2022.

Reviews

"It lives in its specificity, global in its implications (...) ' The Territory' closes with a sense of hope, no matter how difficult and fragile it may be".

— Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter

"A collaborative documentary and naturalist that is interesting as it is frightening".

— Michael Frank, The Film Stage

"Is emotional because precisely goes directly to the heart of what cinema can be".

— Screendaily
