Coinciding with the beginning of this years’ Excavation Camapign, the MEH (Museum on Human Evolution) launched on 15 June the documentary “In search of the lost future”, which is understood as a road movie starring Eudald Carbonell - co-director of the Atapuerca Sites - and Luis Quevedo - producer, presenter and journalist who has been internationally awarded. The movie was projected at 20:15 at the Assembly Hall and the entry was free until full capacity was reached.The film aims at drawing a pathway for the spectator to feel the African heat and the boreal cold, the Turkish fertile crescent and the inviolable Mayan jungle. It is about an hour long and talks about an improvised group of explorers following the clues left by ancient societies, clues that may lead us to the understanding of essential mechanisms in every civilisation, those which have allowed the development of culture and trade and which led to the collapse of all those which preceded us.

The trip was directed by Eudald Carbonell, renowned Spanish archaeologist and co-director of Atapuerca, and by the science journalist and disseminator Luis Quevedo. They present the concept of cultural evolution as the motor of human kind’s development, which has allowed us move from a situation in which we almost reached extinction in Africa 150,000 years ago, to the conquer of almost the whole planet. The documentary, which has a 56-minutes length, has been written and directed by Luis Quevedo and Alfonso Par and produced by “Turkana Films” and TVE, with Fecyt’s help.

Luis Quevedo is an internationally awarded producer, presenter and journalist. He bet and is still committed to share his passion for the discovery and progress of humanity through informational and entertainment lines, and to the ability to entertain and educate as a journalist and producer. He is known for his work with Eduard Punset in REDES, and he was part of the creative team of Tres14 - and also presenter - before he produced the awarded documentary “In search of the first European”. He moved to New York in 2010 and created the pioneer blog and podcast “Science Friday” in Spanish, and now he directs and presents CST, the global news about science and technology in Spanish, which is watched by millions of people every day on NTN24. He has also achieved other successes: to be director of the Imagine Science Films Festival, produced in collaboration with Google, Nature and Science, among others, and to be creator of the science, health and education podcast to Social Gradient minorities in the Hunter College of the City University of New York. In America he has been distinguished as Minority Fellow of the National Association of Science Writers (NASW) and as mentor of the first promotion of Mass Media Fellows by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

That is why you can not miss 'In search of the lost future', a great work by a great professional team and with great recognition, which guarantees an interesting documentary of great value.
