Man is unlimited.
Nothing is impossible for him.
What seemed to be a unthinkable undertaking yesterday
are history today.
The conquest of the moon for example
Today we are already on the threshold
of conquering our galaxy.
And in the not to distant tomorrow
We'll be considering the conquest of the universe.
And yet man seems to ignore
the fact that on this very planet
there are still people living in the stone age
and practicing cannibalism.
Primitive tribes isolated
in ruthless hostile environments
where the prevailing law is survival of the fittest
And this jungle which its inhabitants refer too,
as the Green Inferno
Is only a few hours flying time
from New York City
was it to remind us that four brave Americans
went there to make a documentary on life in the jungle
was it also to remind us for instance
that before venturing into space
we should become more acquainted
with the planet that we live on.
Four young and fearless Americans,
children of the space age...
armed with cameras, microphones, and curiosity.
Alan Yates, director famous
for his documentaries on
Vietnam and Africa.
Faye Daniels, his girlfriend and script girl.
and their two cameramen, inseparable friends,
Jack Anders and Mark Tomaso
Four youngsters who never came back.
But let's have a look at them
at the beginning of their incredible adventure.
Here at the border between Brazil and Peru.
They are about to board a plane
to take them to the Rio Ocoro.
A last outpost from which they will continue on foot.
Deep into the Amazon Jungle.
Into the area known as the Green Inferno.
Hey, are you really not scared?
Not at all... I have been in plenty
of dangerous places with them.
What about you, Alan?
Well there's only one thing scares me.
and that's marriage..
He'd take me to the North Pole to put it off...
I'd say you succeeded this time too.
And this last time.
Yes, provided we come back in one piece.
Alright, alright... Let's go.
Well you four are certainly the first
to embark on such an adventure.
There was a expedition in 59 and another in 67
And neither of them came back.
Yea that was Smith and a bunch of Frenchman.
Yea, Frenchman, they were amateurs
and a bunch of jerks.
They never succeeded in doing anything.
For us the difficult doesn't exist.
The impossible just takes a little more time.
We have Felipe our guide.
Those are the last pictures we have of them.
Two months have passed
since they were last heard from.
Are they still alive?
And if so - where are they?
These are the questions that
New York University and the
Pan American Broadcasting System
...hope to be able to answer.
Thank you for accepting Professor Monroe.
Professor Harold Monroe,
NYU's noted anthropologist.
Has taken part in various expeditions
exploring primitive cultures.
But this will be his first journey into Amazonea...
Look at what he's carrying...
He was only 20 years old.
Once it hits the bloodstream,
there is nothing one can do...
Better a bullet than a dart
from a blowgun.
But we gave him the serum
at the right time.
Sure, the serum
It only works half the time...
If it isn't already too old
by the time we get it.
The guys wouldn't give a sh*t
after the death of Oliveira.
And they are right.
In a short while the American is arriving...
... and we've got orders to help him.
passport into the Green Inferno.
Here you are Lieutenant...
