The Movie

The journey of three young directors seeking to discover and record the wildlife of the Noel Kempff Mercado National Park, one of the most secluded and untouched places in the Amazon rainforest. It is an exhilarating environment for an exceptional and enriching human experience.


At the beginning of the 20th century, a new approach and attitude starts to take shape through the novels of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his “Lost World” or the tales of David Livingstone’s adventure, amongst others. Simple backpacking becomes increasingly commonplace as scientists move from one expedition and discovery to another, and beyond.

More than a century later, the legacy of these pioneers continues igniting passions and adventurous desires within people around the world.

It is precisely off that passion, off that quest for unadulterated wilderness and new discoveries that Joshua Preiswerk, Cédrik Strahm and Martin Ureta, three young Swiss directors who are as creative as they are adventurous, feed themselves.

The aim of the expedition “Objectif Sauvage” is to offer viewers a different perspective on the various steps of such a large endeavor, set in one of the most inaccessible and untamed places on Earth.

Within the glorious national park “Noel Kempff Mercado”, located in the Bolivian Amazon, the crew aims to share the emotions, discoveries and inherent challenges that are an integral part of successfully completing such an adventure.

It is through their own experiences behind cameras that they wish to discover and share, through a compelling cinematographic piece, one of the least explored places in the world by record with sound and image the diversity of species living within the various ecosystems of the park.
