On the big screen: The Lost City of Z

Director: James Gray.

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 civilisation that may once have inhabited the region.

Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment, who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett, who is 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.
