DESCRIPTION:
(from Viceland's press release, March 2017) VICELAND releases the trailer and confirms a March 28 launch date for the 10-episode original documentary series Jungletown. Created by two-time Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning filmmaker Ondi Timoner ("DIG!", "WE LIVE IN PUBLIC", "BRAND: A Second Coming"), Jungletown chronicles the creation of a sustainable modern town and the drama that undoubtedly comes with strangers living together in the jungle. Ondi has embedded herself within a group of idealistic young students and staff members alongside a charismatic entrepreneur, who facing impending climate disaster, have committed themselves to the creation of "the world's greatest sustainable modern town" in Panama, called Kalu Yala ("Sacred Land"). She captures the conflict and catharsis that comes when their dream of a "sacred land" collides with the reality that they are in the middle of the jungle and must make everything they need, literally building something from nothing - from basic shelter to a functional community. The series also features Kalu Yala creator Jimmy Stice. Jungletown debuts on Tuesday, March 28 at 10:00pmEST/PST on VICELAND.
