National Geographic Documentary Films has announced the release dates for the feature documentary “The Territory.”
The film will premiere on National Geographic Channel on Dec. 1, at 10 p.m. EST/PST and will then be available to stream Dec. 2 on Disney+.
“The Territory,” from director Alex Pritz, 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 farmers and illegal settlers in the Brazilian Amazon. Shot over three years, the film includes footage taken by the native activists themselves as they seek to expose the truth.
The documentary is directed by Ferras Fayyad and produced by Darren Aronofsky and Sigrid Dyekjaer. The film is the debut feature documentary for Alex Fritz, with Uru-eu-wau-wau activist Txai Suruí serving as executive producer. Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures co-produced the film with Dyekjaer, Will N. Miller, Lizzie Gillett, Gabriel Uchida and Passion Pictures also producing.
