It says in the following link that 'The Lost City of Z was supported with funding from Northern Ireland Screen':

I had a few days filming as an extra at the Dry Dock, in Methodist College, and at Castle Ward. I was really  surprised I wasn’t nominated for an Oscar.

Mind you it was a rubbish movie. The only exciting bit was when Charlie Hunnam got stung by a wasp during filming

 :D Loved that post. And it reminded me of being an extra and seeing Robbie Coltraine who came out of his caravan and yelled "Hiya baxters" at us lesser mortals trying to earn a few quid and keep body and soul together. Big time Charlie that he is. Then he got his leg stuck under the table of a fake railway carriage and trailed half the set away trying to free it. Life has its compensations.
Cryptic clue time: who wrote 1001 uses of vinegar but forgot chips? It's a war of attrition folks, make no mistake. Keep your thread alive.

Well a guy in a loincloth has to have somewhere to hide his emergency rations,... and a bag of spuds takes a lot of concealing.
