    • Synopsis
    • An up close and personal film that takes you inside the hunting of African lions, a controversial trophy sport enjoyed by a select few of the world’s wealthiest.

      Many hunters consider themselves conservationists, and animal lovers. They justify their right to hunt as central to the preservation of the species, and defend the benefits of their concession fees.

      King of Beasts follows one so convinced hunter, deep into the Tanzanian bush, on a determined and at times surreal pursuit of the ultimate trophy - the king of beasts. With never before seen access and footage, this film will make you question man’s very nature, as well as our place in the animal kingdom.
