SAFTA-award-winning film about a man aiming to halt the alarming decline in southern Africa’s leopard populations due to a widespread skin trade. Traditionally only Zulu royals have been allowed to wear leopard skins, however the Shembe Church, a four million strong religious group, has adopted the skins into their ceremonial outfit. The demand for leopard skins is now unsustainable, law enforcement is helpless to police this trade and so Panthera’s Tristan Dickerson travels from the heart of the African bush to the centre of Shembe and Zulu culture and beyond to China, seeking a solution benefitting all parties.
