Episode : 5 The Real Lords of the Savanah

Director : Jean Marc Dauphin

Synopsis : What if the lion, a predator known for its fragility and short life expectancy, has been wrongly labeled the king of all animals?
Indeed, the hierarchy as we know it in the animal kingdom needs some revisiting. Special attention should be given to those species with incredible capacities to adapt, endless stamina and the ability to expand their natural habitat. Then emerge the true lords of the savannah, among them the herbivores, the birds… and some predators.
This visually elegant film questions generally accepted ideas and disparage some overrated reputations bringing an original and innovating look on the African wildlife.
