Comments: This 90 minute dramocumentary, filmed over two years by Dereck and Beverly Joubert, the award-winning filmmakers of Eternal Enemies is a must see. Effectively told through a series of flashbacks, the film chronicles the first two years of one leopard's life. There are no humans in this one. It's all about the cats. You've got to see what Legadema does when he finds himself in possession of a day-old baboon baby. It will amaze you.

I'm willing to admit that these kinds of dramocumentaries manufacture a story to a large degree, but this stuff is caught on film and I don't think the cats are privy to the script.

Summary: Eye of the Leopard takes viewers on an enthralling journey deep into the rarely seen lives of leopards. It is a journey of birth, life and death as a mother leopard and her first surviving cub of six, fight off marauding baboons and elude scavenging hyenas in a constant struggle for survival.
