"In 2015, two friends - James Trundle and Benjamin Sadd - travelled to the Amazon to build their own dugout canoe, one of the oldest and simplest forms of transport, and paddle it through the jungles of Ecuador. They lived with members of the Huaorani tribe that helped them build the canoe, then launched it into a river and continued their adventure through Ecuador's Yasuni region. DugOut captures the final days of this isolated region of natural rainforest, which has been thrown open to the modern world of industrialization since filming. "
