aka Taken By The Tiger
Pre-release screening of the film by the Oscar winner Director Ross Kauffman, in association with Discovery Channel, an intimate look at tigers living in the wild.
The documentary intrigue is taken to spotlight tigers, animals that have long been the subject of myths and folktales, poetry and art. Half a century ago, in the jungles of India, a young forest officer rallied the world to save tigers from extinction. Today, the creed is carried on in Far East Russia by the guardians of the last Siberian tigers, who risk everything to save the species. Tigerland explores two passionate activists separated by fifty years who made it their mission to save the beloved and often misunderstood majestical tigers.
After the screening Ross Kauffman and Pavel Fomenko, Head of the Asian Big Cats Program at WWF Russia Amur branch, will hold a Q&A session.
