    • Synopsis
    • In 2007, filmmaker Fraser C. Heston discovered a lost cache of unedited footage shot by adventure-author Milt Machlin during his expedition to the cannibal coast of New Guinea in 1969, in search of Michael Rockefeller. Michael vanished in 1961 when his trading canoe capsized. Rockefeller’s disappearance is an enduring unsolved mystery of the 20th Century. The film includes unreleased footage and eye-witness interviews, including startling revelations, which shed new light on the mystery. With found footage, the filmmakers have created an entirely new film from Milt Machlin’s unedited epic adventure.
