Renowned South African wildlife filmmakers Dereck and Beverley Joubert have won an Emmy Award in the Best Science, Technology and Nature Film category for their full length feature film “Eye of the Leopard’
Filmed on HD (high definition) in Botswana’s Mombo region, the film is the intimate story of a female leopard told through her eyes. The Jouberts followed the leopard over a three-year period, from the time she was an eight-day old cub.
“Eye of the Leopard’ has a dramatic narrative structure, including flashbacks to the leopard’s youth. It is narrated by award-wining British actor Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune’).
The film was also nominated at Jackson Hole for Best Writing/Script and received the Municipality of Cogne Prize at the Valle d’Aosta International Nature Film Festival, as well as the Golden Ibex Trophy for its cinematographic content.
