Just as it does every January, Explora Films will attend NATPE, the showcase for international audiovisual content, to present its new documentary productions.
Explora presents a worldwide premiere at NATPE: “Millennial Peru: The untold History” (1 x 52’) where we will travel back in time, 4,000 years ago, to the settlements in the shoreline and in the Andes in Peru, the cradle of surprising civilizations. In this period, known as Formative, enigmatic temples and sanctuaries were built, where people used to attend in exchange of their farming surplus for knowledge: Chavin, Huantar, Ventarron, Kuntur Wassi, Sechin or Caral were big centres for knowledge. They created wonders that still represent a mystery, as Cumbemayo, the major hydraulic engineer work in the Americas.
“Rhinoceroses, the curse of the magic horn” (1 x 52’) will also be premiered during the market, a new wildlife special directed by Fernando Gonzalez-Sitges. Through the stories of three rhinos – one White, one Black, and one Indian Rhinoceros – we will gradually discover the diversity within an animal family able to adapt to and colonize the most extreme habitats. The White and Black Rhinoceros of Africa and the Indian, Javan, and Sumatran rhinos of Asia will give us a surprising vision of these powerful and irritable giants which Man has pushed to the edge of extinction. The adventures of our three protagonists will lead us to discover the drastic measures that are being taken in many countries to ensure their survival.
During the showcase, several other new projects from the company will premiere, including the Peruvian history special “The Lady of Cao” (1 x 52’), “The Moche Route” (1 x 52’) and “The Spirits of Congo”, currently in production.
