An Untamed Wilderness

By Tristan Thompson

One man. One camera. One rainforest.

 

An Untamed Wilderness is a documentary film centred deep within the Tambopata National Reserve, a largely unexplored region of lowland rainforest in south eastern Peru. 

 

The film follows some of the planets rarest, most unusual and most endangered species in their daily trials of life, exploring the rainforest in a journey spanning the high treetops to the low lying lakes and rivers. 

 

Along the way, hidden cameras reveal an abundance of big cats and we encounter one of the worlds most beautiful and elusive birds, witnessing behaviours that have never been filmed before.
