Set in the early 20th Century, British artillery officer Percy Fawcett is employed by the Royal Geographical Society to map an area of the Brazilian jungle. Accompanied by Corporal Henry Costin, the two brave the unchartered Amazonian landscape and its sweltering environment, murky waters, poisonous creatures and so-called ‘savage’ inhabitants. While carrying out their work, Fawcett discovers evidence of an ancient civilization he calls ‘Z’, and becomes determined to prove its existence to the western world. Returning to the jungle time after time, even after being wounded during World War One, the film depicts the danger Fawcett faces and the toll it takes on his family as he delves deeper into the jungle to find his lost city of ‘Z’. Epic in its telling, the film offers an interesting angle on early 20th century thinking on travel, exploration and science.
