DESCRIPTION

For wildlife filmmakers, the only way to safely explore the startling powers of the African lion has been at the end of a mighty long lens — until now. Man v. Lion follows veteran big cat expert Boone Smith across the Nambiti Game Reserve, tracking three male lions searching for their next meal. We follow along as they hunt for food and search for a mate in the open African bush. But to truly understand what makes these brothers tick, Boone will go face to face with them. One inch of acrylic separates him from one of the world’s top predators, bringing audiences closer to African lions than ever before. We take an in-depth look into lions’ unique physical attributes, their intricate hierarchy, and their complex hunting strategies. Boone explores each stage of a lion’s kill — the stalk, the pursuit, the jump, strength and the bite — all leading up to the final face-off: Boone in the middle of lions devouring their prey, close enough to feel their breath.
