Directed by Ana Cruz

Cast: Alexander Holtmann, Ottmar Ette, Robert Bye

The Vision of the Explorer reveals the amazing story of the greatest explorer of the Americas and Cuba. At the turn of the 19th century, Alexander von Humboldt began a 5-year scientific expedition in the New World. Traveling through dangerous waters and dry deserts, and over treacherous mountains and unforgiving terrain, Humboldt documented the environment, geography and cultures of the continents of North and South America. The most famous scientist of his age, Humboldt changed our understanding of nature. He was also the first person to write about human-induced climate change. This fascinating documentary takes us on Humboldt’s amazing adventure of discovery and exploration throughout New Spain, an area that includes present-day Mexico.
