Synopsis

In the depths of South America, where the Andes, the Amazon and the Equator collide, a wilderness exists that is home to some of the last remaining uncontacted people in the world. The forest in which they live may claim our planet's highest biodiversity. A place where mammals, birds, plants and amphibians reach peak diversity, together. Because of its biological diversity and cultural significance, the forest was designated a UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve and Ecuador's largest national park. It is now known as the Yasuni Man and Biosphere Reserve. The documentary ushers the viewer into a world unexplored and illustrates a cautionary tale of the far-reaching impact our dependence on fossil fuels can have on wildlife and indigenous people.
