Jun 13, 2023 | Aviation, Environmental, People, Videos

The “Dicing with Death” documentary series is back with its latest episode, exploring the remote and isolated region of Llanos in Colombia’s Amazon. While the area is mainly accessible only by plane, local villagers rely on pilots to bring in vital supplies and goods — including food, manure, and weedkiller. Yet these daring individuals have to brave conditions that would otherwise be deemed unthinkable: they must land amongst animals and children.

Joachim is one of these intrepid pilots, though not without his own share of tribulations — having broken two planes during his time flying in Llanos. His most memorable incident was when he fell 70 meters after being engulfed by a swarm of bees. This harrowing experience serves as just one example of the lengths people in this area go through in order to improve their lives.

To understand more about this extraordinary place and its inhabitants, viewers are invited to watch this latest episode of the “Dicing with Death” series — an exploration into a world where danger is part of daily life and where there’s no room for mistakes. Here you’ll find stories of resilience, bravery, and determination as locals fight against long odds to make a change in their lives. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience it!
