The documentary follows Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master Wallid Ismail, who launched what is now a major Latin American MMA league, Jungle Fight, in 2003.
This feature documentary is the first to explore the rise of Brazilian MMA. The producers look at how ‘Jungle Fight’ came into being, starting out in Manaus, Amazonas, heart of the Amazon rain forest, led Ismail.
London-based Park Entertainment distributes the documentary internationally.
The film had an estimated $750,000 budget and a total approximate run time of 88 minutes.
