Welcome to the trailer for I Am Lion, the new feature by Tauana Films.
An unforgettable expedition into the mind and soul of a lion. There has never been a lion film like this. It is the story of a young lioness’s growing self-awareness, and her determination to re-integrate into a wild habitat. It was thought impossible to determine consciousness in lions in the wild, because it would just be too dangerous. But sometimes a unique opportunity presents itself and the time invested in a specific animal pays unexpected dividends. We had been filming lions in the wild for almost forty years when we discovered an amazing friendship developing between a man and a lioness. Many years in the wild had convinced us that there is much more to animals including lions than meets the eye; that they are not just instinctive organisms, but that they have the ability to feel, think and learn. Our time with this young lioness taught us more than we ever thought possible, because she allowed us to enter the secret worlds of lions and the prey they hunt to survive. This is a film that will blow you away and transform the way you look at animals.
