Die Leopardin

Few animals can match the elegance of leopards. But rarely do you see the cautious and extremely shy big cats for more than a few seconds. In the Serengeti, however, it was possible to capture amazing insights into the social life and hunting tactics of the ambush hunters. At the center of the film is a female leopard and the struggle to raise her young. An intimate portrait of an extraordinary female, whose fate the animal filmmaker Reinhard Radke accompany over two years.

This film will be shown only online as part of "one film - one day".
