High up on the Tibetan plateau, amongst unexplored and inaccessible valleys lies one of the last sanctuaries of the wild world, where rare and undiscovered fauna lives. Vincent Munier, one of the world’s most renowned wildlife photographers takes the adventurer and novelist Sylvain Tesson with him on his search for the snow leopard, one of the rarest and most difficult big cats to approach.
In a deeply poetic film, through their journey in the Tibetan peaks, inhabited by invisible presences, the two men ponder humankind’s place amongst the magnificent creatures and glorious landscapes they encounter along the way
“Gorgeous, humbling, looking out-, up- and inward, the documentary THE VELVET QUEEN is the rare nature film about not only beauty and beasts but also the very human urge to make sense of our place in it all.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
