Exploration Guyana: video

Director: Charles Montier | Producer: Charles Montier
Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 2011 | Story Teller’s Country: United Kingdom

Synopsis: Guyana is the size of Britain, with just two percent of the population. Its towns are clustered on the coast, so travel inland and there’s nothing but virgin tropical forest. A single road cuts through the jungle to reach the South and there are few airstrips, so the only way of exploring the interior is via its network of rivers. As a result, few people venture into the interior, leaving it unspoiled and pristine.
