A new documentary film at the Fassino cinema, in collaboration with the CAI sections of Val Susa and Val Sangone and the City of Avigliana: The snow panther.
The Snow Panther, the film directed by Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier, is a documentary shot on the Tibetan plateau, a wild habitat where rare animals live. The nature photographer Vincent Munier, accompanied by the novelist Sylvain Tesson, explores these impervious valleys in search of the snow panther, not only one of the largest cats in existence, but also one of the rarest and most difficult to spot.
While the music of Warren Ellis and Nick Cave accompanies the images of an undisputed and little explored nature, one can admire the disarming beauty of this almost untouched world. The snow panther thus becomes the symbol of this environment which refers to a primordial idea of nature, although it is threatened by the artificial influence of the human being. The journey that the two men make is a sort of mystical journey, which will make them wonder what their place really is in the world and will put them in front of their own self, the one rooted in the depths of their conscience. In the middle of the plateaus of Tibet, Tesson comes to wonder if everything on this planet was really created to be seen by man or if, in this as in other cases, the human being could do without looking and, worse still, to intervene, compromising the majesty of this place, which risks being destroyed forever.
