Winner of the 2002 "Teddy Award" for the nation's best conservation film, "In the Shadow of the Condor" is a stunning journey into the spectacular, pristine Corcovado wilderness in Southern Chile. The expedition travels up a "heart of darkness" river, climbs through a treacherous vertical jungle, and then emerges out into a magnificent "Yosemite" canyon of towering granite walls. Filmmaker Michael Brown and Chilean conservationist Pablo Sandor climb to find a jewel of a lake tucked between the highest peaks.

Sandor and his Ayacara Foundation are working to protect the Corcovado region from development. The United Nations awarded Ayacara a prestigious conservation grant. Ayacara leaders gave important credit to this film, which dramatized first-hand why the region is a magnificent international treasure.
