The Lost City of Z is an adaptation of the best-seller book by David Grann, describing the quest of the British explorer Percy Fawcett in 1925. He and his son went missing in the jungle while looking for an ancient civilization. Fawcett was lucky enough to have survived a first expedition in which he believed he saw a forgotten city. Now it turns out that modern archaeologists have found the remains of old urban settlements in the heart of the Amazon (named Kuhikugu), although this is another story.
Our movie follows the fascinating true adventures of this blend of Indiana Jones and late Victorian Aguirre, played by Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim). The cast also includes Sienna Miller (Stardust, Burnt), Tom Holland (the new Spider-Man), and the former Twilight vampire Robert Pattinson. Director James Gray (The Immigrant, Two Lovers) is also the writer of the film.
The Lost City of Z was filmed basically in Colombia and Northern Ireland. Here are some of the most relevant filming locations of a complex production that required five weeks of shooting in each country:
