THE VELVET QUEEN aka La Panthère des neiges d. Marie Amiguet & Vincent Munier, 2021 + Intro with writer Sylvain Tesson (25 JAN 18:15) / Part of BEFORE THE NIGHT at Ciné Lumière.

“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.”
