THE TERRITORY

USA, Brasilien, Dänemark 2022 – Director: Alex Pritz – Studio Talk, Original with English subtitles

The indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau live a secluded life in the middle of the Brazilian jungle. Young Bitaté leads them in a fight for their land, which they must defend against settlers and smallholders. Since Bolsonaro’s election, illegal forest clearance fires in the Amazon have increased and violence is tolerated. A visually powerful eco-thriller from the perspective of the indigenous population.

We present the German premiere of the film.
