A film by Michael Welsh and Martin Dohrn

About the film
Once the sun has gone down beyond the horizon, it is only then that the deadly lion truly comes to life, using scent and sound to stalk and kill its prey. But this nighttime hunting routine has been virtually impossible to capture on film - until now. With the aid of new light enhancing, heat-seeking technology, the starlight camera transforms pitch-black wilderness into an array of vibrant colors. Observe lions and their prey in crystal-clear detail as our team, finally, gets the chance to properly study these untamed predators during their most active period. This film demonstrates not only how groundbreaking equipment can revolutionize wildlife filmmaking, but also the lethal precision of the hunting lion after dark.
Run time: 50 min.
