“An extraordinary film about one of the world’s most amazing cats - easily the best nature documentary that I have ever seen”

Eye of the Leopard takes viewers on an enthralling journey deep into the rarely seen lives of leopards. It is a journey of birth, life and death as a mother leopard and her first surviving cub of six, fight off marauding baboons and elude scavenging hyenas in a constant struggle for survival.

Unlike many other animals, leopards hunt and live alone. These deadly predators depend on their intelligence and stealth.

This one and a half hour cinematographic experience is brought to life by Dereck and Beverly Joubert, the award-winning husband-and-wife filmmakers famous for Eternal Enemies, and is narrated by Oscar winner actor Jeremy Irons.

Dereck and Beverly Joubert started filming the life of a leopard since it was an eight days old cub. The baby was named Legadema, which means “light from the sky” in Botswana’s national language Setswana. The Joubert couple spent three and half years of perilous life, closely watching Legadema’s every step of the way, until she is 3 years old and on the brink of adulthood.

Legadema works her way into your heart as she slips in and out of danger virtually every day, running from baboons and hyenas but also making landmark strides in hunting and surviving. It is the story of a mother and daughter relationship, as well as that of an emerging huntress in Botswana’s magnificent Mombo region of the Okavango Delta.
