When it comes to stories based on true stories you need to keep in mind that some of the story have been altered to the film, added something or removed something because it wasn’t interesting enough. ‘The Lost City of Z’ is taking place between 1911 – 1920’s about a man Percy Fawcett, a man who was obsessed about finding a lost city in the Amazon jungle.
He left three times and going to first world war once. But last time he left he went missing. During his travels he saw antiques older than any society spread out, knowing it’s a city out there somewhere, a city who been long forgotten and abandoned. When Percy is about to return for a third time his oldest son Jack is to join him. He wants to go out there for longer and with less things to make it an easy one.
Percy & Jack sets off to the jungle and charts into unknown terratory.Thinking they would return with the exact location of the lost city. With high hopes they are making their way through the jungle, the jungle that got so many dangers, mainly the tribes.
It’s been almost 100 years since the disappearance of Percy & Jack Fawcett, no one knows what actually happened to them. They either got a cut and died from illness from a untreated wound, kidnapped by a tribe and prepared to be the meal. Might even have fallen down a cliff. We will never know what happened. We can only speculate.
I would recommend seeing the film and Percy’s struggle to be believed as for he was made fun of before they believe him.. During 21st century archeologists have found a network of tunnels, bridges etc that suggest city of Z.
