DESCRIPTION:
(from Facebook's press release, June 2019) A ground-breaking documentary series, Curse of Akakor follows six investigators deep into the Amazon jungle on the search for a lost city and the answer to a chilling question: why does almost everyone who chases the Akakor legend go missing? Three explorers on three different expeditions disappeared in the 1980s while seeking a lost city of gold called Akakor and its sister city, Akahim. A fourth explorer was murdered in mysterious circumstances just before embarking on his expedition. For almost 40 years, the disappearances and murder have remained unexplained. To finally uncover the truth, investigative journalist Paul Connolly; former FBI agent Bobby Chacon; tech expert Brennon Edwards; survival expert Megan Hine; wilderness doctor Dr. Karina Oliani and geologist/explorer Dr. Martin Pepper are following in the footsteps of those ill-fated expeditions. Armed with the latest technology and guided by ancient clues, they have a dual mission: to search for evidence of the lost cities; and to discover what happened to the explorers who never came back.
