“riveting and despairing in equal measure.”

Guy Lodge, Variety

“‘The Territory” is an urgent story of courage and resilience, beautifully told by first-time feature director Alex Pritz. We are honored to bring the story of the Uru-eu-wau-wau people to the world and help further the conversation and raise awareness around the endangered Amazon rainforest and its indigenous people"

Carolyn Bernstein, executive VP of global scripted content and documentary films for National Geographic

"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."
