Sony Pictures Animation presents a screening of “The Territory” on May 21st; doors open at 4pm 

The Territory 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. With awe-inspiring cinematography showcasing the titular landscape and richly textured sound design, the film 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. Partially shot by the Uru-eu-wau-wau people, the film relies on vérité footage captured over three years as the community risks their lives to set up their own news media team in the hopes of exposing the truth. 

In addition to the screening, the evening will also include a panel discussion with César Muñoz (Associate Director of HRW’s Americas division), and Will N. Miller (producer of The Territory), followed by a reception.

This screening is the LA Film Club’s annual fundraiser. Donations will go toward the work of HRW’s Environment and Human Rights and Americas Divisions and their local Student Task Force.
