The sampler (right) was made as we started work on Lion Ark, it gives a taste of this action driven documentary following the world’s most ambitious and daring animal rescue, with a narrative meticulously compiled from interviews, conversations and the reactions of participants as events actually unfolded.
An undercover investigation by Animal Defenders International led to a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia. But the circuses defied the law. So, the team return, track down the illegal circuses and save every animal. The confrontations, heartache and incredible risks are all captured before a finale sees 25 lions airlifted almost 5,000 miles to freedom. An uplifting story of how a poor but proud country said ‘no’ to cruelty SYNOPSIS
