When a group of populist Brazilian farmers take control over a new area of the Amazon rainforest, a conflict erupts at the forest's edge.


Landlock is a character driven feature documentary set in the Brazilian Amazon.


“Landlock” is a verite documentary, driven by on-the-ground access to the conflict over the Brazilian rainforest. Moving with each our our characters through the frontline communities involved in this fight, we stay up close and personal as the pressure increases on the individuals at the center of a global resource war.
