In Brazil’s Amazonian rainforest the indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau community organizes to defend their land against a network of Brazilian farmers intent on colonizing their protected territory. Filmmaker Alex Pritz teams with members of the Uru-eu-wau-wau to capture the frontlines of a battle that has global consequences for the climate crisis. “No recent film captures the immediacy of the threat better than THE TERRITORY.” (NY Times).
