In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, multi-award-winning nature photographer Vincent Munier guides novelist and adventurer 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 in the Tibetan peaks, inhabited by invisible presences, the two men ponder humankind’s place amongst the magnificent creatures and glorious landscapes they encounter along the way. French with subtitles.

"This elegant, unusual documentary shifts the role of the game-spotter from that of non-violent hunter — in pursuit of one prized target — to passive but duly wide-eyed observer, accepting but also appreciating the limits of our access." - Variety
“Present[s] one awe-inspiring image after another of beautiful bharals seemingly defying gravity as they climb up the sides of hills and dust storms that come to overwhelm the valley. Both an amazing piece of escapism and incredibly relatable. Amiguet get[s] at something even scarcer and more exquisite than what the two men are chasing.” - The Moveable Fest
