Available for Free and Ticketed screenings
This is a story about Kapurua Daniel, a young boy who lives in Amboseli in Kenya who wants to grow up to become a Lion Guardian like his older brother. Historically, Maasai boys have killed lions to become warriors. But something different is happening here, where the Maasai are now employed to protect lions, and show how both people and Africa's iconic cat can live together in this landscape.
