The Lost City of Z


Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "Lost World" is believed to have been inspired by his good friend Percy Harrison Fawcett's expedition to Bolivia in search of the lost city of Z, said to be the remains of El Dorado.

Truth is stranger than fiction and this movie, based on David Grann's non-fiction bestseller, tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region.

Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett — supported by his devoted wife, son and aide-de-camp — returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.

This is the full-length movie, albeit with Indonesian sub-titles. Enjoy!
