Uproot (late-stage development)

Uproot is about a man from Ecuador who purchased an island in the Amazon to save endangered primates. More than 180 monkeys are living with him on the island and now, he must translocate several troops two-hours downriver to Yasuní National Park, one of the world’s last remaining high-biodiversity forests.  This is an extremely risky conservation project that’s never been done and new oil concessions in the park are getting in the way of the release.
