Nature has found a place to evolve…
Deep in the Amazon Jungle a research team lead by a respected professor strive to protect vulnerable and endangered species, but when their guides abandon them they begin to realize they are in the hunting ground of an apex predator.
And before long, they will be the ones on the endangered list…..
The Expedition is a contemporary twist on the monster movie filled with real characters, complex personal drama and heart thumping scares! We’re not interested in covering the screen with blood and guts. This story sets out to do so much more than that. In addition, the heart of this movie will contain a strong environmental message.
Logging and deforestation in the Amazon and other worldwide rainforest ecosystems is a real problem and while this film will be a work of fiction and designed for entertainment purposes, we want to draw attention and do our part to raise awareness for the conservation of the incredible Amazon basin and the peoples who reside there.
