About the film
For centuries, Hondurans have passed down the story of La Ciudad Blanca, the lost white city, rumored to be more opulent than any Spanish Conquistador had ever found.
In 1994, amateur explorer Steve Elkins set out to determine if there was any truth behind the great legend. In 2011, Steve was joined by documentary filmmaker Bill Benenson, and together they assembled the world’s foremost specialists in LIDAR mapping to scan the impenetrable La Mosquitia jungle. What they unearthed exceeded their wildest expectations, but what the jungle unleashed, in turn, was more debilitating than any of them had bargained for. Was this the CURSE OF THE MONKEY GOD?
