The encounter of image and word – How do we perceive the all-encompassing beauty of nature and how can we translate it into a visual story or text? The protagonists of the film, Vincent Munier, a French nature photographer, and Sylvain Tesson, a French writer and traveller, embark on a journey to Tibet. In the vastness of the realm of wild animals, they want to meet the most mysterious and elusive predator – the snow panther. The mesmerizing music of Warren Ellis and Nick Cave completes the extraordinary encounter with nature as it is, without human intervention.
