La Panthère des neiges

FRA | 92 mins | 2021 | doc | dir.s Marie Amiguet & Vincent Munier, with photographer Vincent Munier & writer Sylvain Tesson | UK Premiere

In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, wildlife photographer Vincent Munier brings writer and adventurer Sylvain Tesson on his quest to find the almost legendary snow leopard. He introduces him 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 many animals often invisible to us, writer and photographer engage in a conversation on our place among the living beings and celebrate the beauty of the world.

The Velvet Queen won the prize for Best Documentary Feature at the 27th Lumières International Press Awards as well as the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival and a César Award for Best Documentary Film.
