Ur-Amazonas - Fluss aus der Wüste
Through an expedition to seek proof in support of the theory that one hundred and thirty million years ago the original source of the Amazon was located in the Ounianga Kébir lake district in the modern Sahara, this fascinating film, using the latest graphic and animation techniques, looks at the natural history, geology and archaeology of a rarely filmed region of the Sahara bordering Lake Chad.
