Ranger and Leopard

Il guardiaparco e il leopardo
by Fathollah Amiri IRAN 2017 53'

In the province of Isfahan in central Iran, Halvani, a park warden hears of a Persian leopard roaming in his area. It is the first time in 40 years that a member of this predator species has been sighted by shepherds fearing for their animals. Stunning landscapes and ancient legends combine to create an atmosphere the camera captures as it trails Halvani in his search for the big cat. Tracking the leopard by patient observation of its movements, Halvani shows his appreciation of the nature surrounding him.
