EYE OF THE LEOPARD (Botswana / USA, 2006, 52 min.)
An enthralling journey deep into the rarely seen lives of leopards, this film captures a remarkably intimate and gripping story of a leopard’s survival in wild, unspoiled Africa over a period of three years. It’s a journey of birth, life and death as a mother leopard and her first surviving cub fight off marauding baboons and elude scavenging hyenas in a constant struggle for survival. Through tragedy and triumph, the camera is there to document it all. Narrated by Jeremy Irons. Directed by Dereck and Beverly Joubert. Produced by Wildlife Films Botswana for National Geographic Channel. Winner of the Granada Award for Animal Behavior.
Shown as part of Selections from the 2008 Wildscreen Festival, along with BAMA’S JOURNEY, LIFE IN COLD BLOOD – ARMOURED GIANTS, IRANI WILDLIFE, CHINA’S KILLER ZOOS, RETHINK THE SHARK and THE WHITE WOOD.
