Path of the Panther
International CompetitionFilmEnglish friendly
Impressive shots of wetlands, curious “selfies” of fauna captured by camera traps, and the tireless devotion of the actors unfold the story of a cat’s fight for survival.
It’s a story full of emotion. Disappointment at cold tracks and anger at the expanding infrastructure turn into emotional excitement when the long-awaited predator comes into frame. The fragile existence of the Florida panther is essential not only to the local ecosystem but also to the culture of indigenous people. After years of fruitless search, each paw print is a miracle and proof of defiance against the destructive human hand.
