The Wild Andes

For more than three years, filmmaker Christian Baumeister and his intrepid team braved volcanic peaks, caustic lagoons, dense tropical forests and lightning-strewn salt flats to capture the remarkable diversity of life and landscape found in the Andes Mountains.

The Wild Andes showcases this spectacular region and its animal inhabitants in striking detail.
