Description

Deep in the jungle of Central Vietnam lies the magnificent Hang Son Doong (“mountain river cave”), the largest cave system on the planet. Its pristine charm remained undisturbed for millions of years until in 2014, when its future was thrown into doubt when plans were announced to build a cable car into the cave. With the threat of the destruction of its delicate eco-system pitted against benefits to local community, the film follows those caught up in the unfolding events.


Beautifully shot and scored, A CRACK IN THE MOUNTAIN is a powerful exposé about the casualty of this contest of forces, where both good and bad intentions can ultimately lead to one of the world’s greatest natural wonders being trampled for money.
