Description

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 uses verité-style footage, captured over three years, as the activists risk their lives to set up their own news media team in the hopes of exposing the truth.

 

Will also be showing online as part of our Virtual Screenings - available Wednesday Night (3/30) through the end of fest (4/3)

Idaho only, capped at 300 viewers.
