Argentière (74400)

Laurent Geslin is a naturalist photographer of international reputation. For more than ten years, he has been observing and photographing the boreal lynx in the Jura Mountains. This documentary is a complement to the feature film LYNX, his first film for the cinema.
In the collective imagination, the lynx symbolizes the wild life. If it fascinates many enthusiasts, it also has its detractors. And even some enemies. At a time when the return of large predators is still being debated, what is the outcome 50 years after the reintroduction of this big cat in our forests? To find out, let's go and investigate in the field and meet biologists, veterinarians, hunters and foresters. Their testimonies will allow us to better understand the still fragile situation of a feline essential to the balance of our ecosystem.


Free of charge.
