The Lost City of Z 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.
Insider’s tip: “This is the type of adventure that transports you to a world so exotic and lush and mysterious and dangerous, it feels as if we’re on a different planet” (Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times). Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune adds: “An adventure — a wonderful, old-school adventure, the likes of which we don’t see enough of any more. Lost cities notwithstanding, that makes it a kind of treasure all its own.” Robbie Collin, The Telegraph: “A film as transporting, profound and staggering in its emotional power as anything I’ve seen in the cinema in years.”
