The documentary tells the story of Janos Moricz and his hunt for the “Gold Library,” a rumored site of treasure and other objects that is hidden somewhere in the Amazon. The film details Moricz’s search for the items inside of the Cave of Tayos, a cave located in the Morona-Sanitago province of Ecuador. “After 8 years of research, I’m excited to finally release this film and shed some light on this Ecuadorian mystery,” said Semblantes.
In the clip, we’re treated to a few stunning shots of the wilderness and wildlife that inhabits the region Moricz explores. After descending into a large cavern, we’re then shown even more footage of the area being explored, along with various shots of the tents that have been set up for the journey.
