A film PREVIEW showing as part of the Borderlines Film Festival
A father and son argue over whether they should kill a snow leopard that broke into their home and killed 9 sheep.
It’s a visually stunning, spiritual piece of work, set in a rural community on the Tibetan plateau. A magnificent but deadly snow leopard has been trapped by a shepherd whose sheep it has mauled. He wants to slaughter it but his father, abiding by the traditional Tibetan values of reverence for the animal kingdom, and his younger brother, a monk, do everything in their power to dissuade him.

Borderlines Film Festival 2024 is bigger than ever
Britain’s biggest rural film festival, one of the six largest film festivals in the UK, is set to take place from 1 – 17 March with a record number of screenings and events, just short of 300 in total. Borderlines covers a large area of country with 23 venues across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Malvern and the Marches, from mixed-arts centres and art deco picture palaces to remote village halls.
Supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery, the Elmley Foundation and Hereford City Council, Borderlines offers audiences the opportunity to watch some of the very best new releases, including Oscar and BAFTA nominated titles like All of Us Strangers and The Zone of Interest, American Fiction and Anatomy of a Fall (winner of the 2023 Palme d’Or at Cannes).
