Excellent Environmental Film Festival

DC is fortunate to have the embassiess and other organizations that put on such a successful environmental film festival these last two weeks.

The movies were mostly very good and the events are frequently nice with food and drink.

This year, the festival added a section on wildlife films   from the Wildscreen festival. My favorite appears below:


EYE OF THE LEOPARD (Botswana / USA, 2006, 90 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.
