"Both sumptuous and enraging, [The Territory] reminds viewers how film can be for remembering and preserving as much for rebellion and art.."—Robert Daniels, RogerEbert.com

"Alex Pritz's lean, well-made documentary sides with the Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people in a vicious turf war between them and industrial invaders of their native land."—Guy Lodge, Variety

"With images that are as powerful as they are unexpected, 'The Territory' is a work crafted both by its director Alex Pritz, and by the indigenous community whose story it tells."—Siddhant Adlakha, indieWire

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 nonnative 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 burning and clearing land along with a network of farmers fighting to legitimize their illegal land grab. Partially shot by the Uru-eu-wau-wau people, the film relies on vérité footage captured over three years as the community risks their lives to set up their own news media team in the hopes of exposing the truth.
