Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier - 2021 - 94m - France - In French with English Subtitles

In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, multi-award-winning nature photographer Vincent Munier guides writer Sylvain Tesson on his quest to document the exceptionally elusive snow leopard. Munier introduces Tesson to the subtle art of waiting from a blind spot, tracking animals, and finding the patience to catch sight of the beasts. Through their journey in the Tibetan peaks, inhabited by invisible presences, the two men ponder humankind’s place amongst the magnificent creatures and glorious landscapes they encounter along the way.  Original Music by Warren Ellis featuring Nick Cave

"Amazing... Amiguet get[s] at something even scarcer and more exquisite than what the two men are chasing." - Moveable Fest 

"An intense sensorial experience. The dark sky, the mist, the rugged mountains, the snow, the bear caves and all of nature in its beauty serve as inspiration to the two men’s reflections on their quest" - Cineuropa
