When a group of far right Brazilian farmers take control over a protected area of the Amazon rainforest, a vigilante activist and Indigenous militia fight back in defense of the land and an uncontacted tribe living deep within it.
Landlock is a character driven feature documentary following an environmental activist, a teenage indigenous leader, and a group far right Brazilian farmers as they fight for control of the Brazilian Amazon. Set against the epic fires racing across the rainforest, Landlock is a verite thriller that feels more narrative than nonfiction.
