HIPPOS: NATURE’S WILD FEAST (United Kingdom, 2011, 75 min.)
Witness a high-tech natural history event that presents the most comprehensive illustration to date of nature’s food chain in action. Filmed in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, the film shows the behavior of Africa’s most iconic animals – including lions, leopards, crocodiles, hyenas and vultures – as they fight for access to the two million calories stored in a hippo carcass. A network of remote-control cameras captures the action night and day as the hippo is reduced to scraps, while an international team of scientists analyze how the death of one of Africa’s most iconic animals sustains life for countless other species. Directed by Jonny Young, Produced by Sarah Peat. Wildscreen Winner, Disneynature Innovation Award.
Introduced by Susan Norton, Chief Executive Officer, Wildscreen USA.
