“Peru: Extreme Planet” Now Available on DVD!

PARIS, France — French Connection Films, Codex Now, Vosges Television, and IRD proudly present the DVD release of Peru: Extreme Planet, the three-part documentary series that follows one of the world’s top wildlife photographers, Cyril Ruoso, and two scientific reporters, on an adventurous journey through Peru and cross three of the most extreme ecosystems on our planet: the impenetrable rainforest of the Amazon, the skyscraping glaciers of the Andes, and the desert plains of the Pacific Coast.

As they follow the water cycle from East to West, we are given a unique opportunity to discover stunning landscapes and a rich diversity of animal and plant life which have managed to adapt to conditions of extreme heat, humidity, altitude, cold, or drought.

During their search for rare and uncommon species, they meet with scientists to discover what links all three ecosystems together and why it is so important to preserve them when climate change and human activity are threatening their very existence.

Experience the beauty and thrill as these explorers capture breathtaking images, access remote sites and encounter exotic species – all in the contagious spirit of discovery!
