Kim MacQuarrie is a writer, a four-time Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker, and an anthropologist. He is the author of four books on Peru and lived in that country for five years. During that time, MacQuarrie lived with a recently contacted tribe of indigenous Amazonians, called the Yora. It was MacQuarrie’s experience filming a nearby group of indigenous people, whose ancestors still remembered their contacts with the Inca Empire, that ultimately led him to investigate and then to write his latest book, The Last Days of the Incas. Currently FX Channel is developing The Last Days of the Incas as a thirteen-part scripted television series. MacQuarrie is now at work on a book about a 4,500-mile journey from Colombia to Tierra del Fuego along the spine of the Andes.
