The brothers Joaquin Azulay and Julian Azulay come from Argentina and grew up in a family with a long tradition and passion for surfing.

AFRICAN TERRITORY is a 2-part film about the Azulay brothers' 22-month anthropological expedition to the African continent. An expedition with the aim of fostering human relationships through an unprecedented surf exploration and cultural exchange on this vast and diverse continent.

This summer, African Territory will be screened for the first time in Greece - brought to you by The Athletic Coup. The filmmakers will be present.
