National Geographic has released the trailer for the documentary film “The Territory.”
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.
Check out the trailer below:
“The Territory” 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.
National Geographic will release the documentary later this year in theaters before a streaming release on Disney platforms including Disney+, Hulu and Star+.
