More action-adventure than traditional documentary, Lion Ark follows the world’s most ambitious and daring animal rescue, with a narrative compiled from film, interviews, conversations and reactions as real events unfolded. Discover how attitudes to animals were changed in Bolivia, illegal circuses pursued and closed, and 25 lions airlifted to freedom.
An intriguing mix of characters populate the story including the founders of ADI, a wildlife vet seeking redemption, officials and others whose lives are touched by this huge rescue operation. We learn what drives them and what led them here. Even philanthropist and TV personality Bob Barker, CSI actress Jorja Fox, and Members of the US and Bolivian Congresses make appearances, not as commentators but as participants in this incredible tale.
