The Territories

It’s a miracle that this film even exists, it seems. The three previous times that director and protagonist Iván Granovsky attempted to make a film, he relates with a sense of self-mockery, turned into fiascos. So he decided to follow in the footsteps of his father, a famous journalist with a love of geopolitical relations. However, making a documentary about the scenes of world conflict is no easy task, it turns out. From Greece to Brazil, from the Basque Country to Jerusalem, Granovsky is always too late, too early or in the wrong place. He asks clumsy questions, gets vague answers, and in the meantime receives e-mails from his mother telling him to repay his credit card debts to her.
The Territories is a film you can read like a newspaper, according to Granovsky. On the quiet, it is also a portrait of a thirty-something trying to find his way in a world full of opportunities, but with no idea of where to start.
