The Snow Leopard, a documentary in the heart of Tibet

On December 15, 2021, "La panthère des neiges" was released at the cinema, a documentary directed by Marie Amiguet and Vincent Meunier.

An immersion in the heart of Tibet

Photographer Vincent Meunier takes writer Sylvain Tesson on his quest for the snow leopard. An endangered species, this enigmatic feline from the mountains of Central Asia lives in the most remote and inaccessible regions.

As difficult to observe as to track, he is one of those animals so rare and inconspicuous that every sighting is quite an event. This is why he is sometimes nicknamed "ghost of the mountains".

These two men are going to learn the art of the lookout.

Traveling the summits, the two men weave a dialogue on the place of human beings and celebrate the beauty of the world.


Photographer Vincent Meunier shares his talent with us through his photos in this documentary.
