THE VELVET QUEEN (La Panthère des neiges) 
Directed by Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier, 2021, 1h32, France

Based on the novel La Panthère des neiges by Sylvain Tesson (2019). 

In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, multi-award-winning nature photographer Vincent Munier guides writer Sylvain Tesson on his quest to document the infamously elusive snow leopard. Munier introduces Tesson to the subtle art of waiting from a blind spot, tracking animals, and finding the patience to catch sight of the beasts. Through their journey, the two men ponder humankind’s place amongst the magnificent creatures and glorious landscapes they encounter along the way. 


From June 3 to September 9, Films on the Green is bringing French and Francophone cinema to the New York City area with our free screenings in nine different Manhattan and Brooklyn parks.
