AMAZONposter2008 Best Feature Documentary Award, White Sands, New Mexico

The compelling quest for lost ghosts and mysteries hidden deep within the jungle…

You are on the most powerful river on Earth. This is the most mysterious forest in creation. Here, over a Lost Civilization fades into oblivion beneath the jungle canopy. Here over 50 years ago, a young explorer disappeared.

Today, a fantastic ship sets sail to probe deep into the lost secrets of the Emerald forest. Take the Trek with the first Action-Documentary from the amazing Jules Verne Expedition on board the last 19th Century French Three-Master Ship Belem.

Embark with explorer-filmmaker Jean-Christophe Jeauffre and his crew in retracing the haunting quest of a famed reporter, closely tracking a father’s heart-rending, in search of his vanished son. Experience the extraordinary voyage into the “river-jungle“, in search of the magic of the “medicine plants”, and come face to face with long-lost mysteries…

Join the Jules Verne Adventures team as they reveal for the first time the Lost Civilization of the Maracas Indians, forgotten among the shadows of the Rainforest…

The film is powerfully scored by Emmy Award winner John Scott (Greystoke, Cousteau’s Undersea World) and told by legendary actor Christopher Lee (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings).
