Lions. Not African, but Indian.
After a brush with extinction the Asiatic lion is reclaiming its lost lands.
But can lions and people truly settle their differences and live together… Without conflict?
We are very proud to announce that we have completed our most recent film India’s Wandering Lions . It’s been a labour of love to deliver some unique images of the miraculous growing population of Asiatic lions in India’s Gujarat state.
A thousand years ago, lions were common in many regions across Asia, but were frequently viewed as vermin – to be killed whenever possible. Today, the Indian lion population has rebounded to a population of over 400 – a cause for celebration. However, their success has surpassed the natural capacity of the Gir Forest Sanctuary, forcing lions to spill over its borders and seek new homes. Can they remain out of trouble and keep their human neighbours onside for the long term?
We have worked with Kosmik Global, Earth Touch and Discovery India to bring this incredible story to light. With unprecedented access by locals and the various forest departments, we have uncovered one of the most extraordinary stories of recovery of our generation. Our 4K cameras bring a beautiful richness and clarity to the imagery, while colour starlight and hi-res thermal techniques allow us to create striking images, day or night.
International air dates to be announced soon!
