In the Brazilian rainforest, a battle is being waged between the last of the indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau tribe and the farmers who, with President Bolsonaro at their backs, are slowly eating into their otherwise protected territory.

But young activist and leader Bitate is mobilising an army of self-taught journalists to patrol the jungle and catch the land grabbers in action, with a video camera as their only weapon against the chainsaws.

With awe-inspiring cinematography and richly textured sound design, The Territory takes audiences deep into the Uru-eu-wau-wau community and provides unprecedented access to the farmers and settlers illegally burning and clearing the protected Indigenous land.

The screening on Fri. 2nd Sep will be followed by filmmaker Q&A .

PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
