The Bastard King

Sponsored by:
WaterWorks Seltzer
It is a unique feature project shot over ten years in remote areas of Africa, telling the story of the Bastard King – a lion cub born with heterochromia - one eye yellow, the other blue – the result of a taboo union between the Blue-Eyed and Yellow-Eyed prides. Outcast and hunted by the merciless Scarred King who butchers his siblings, the Bastard Cub and his mother flee for their lives out into the increasingly drought-ridden savannah. Every hunt becomes a lesson in survival, preparing the lion cub for his future... until his mother is brutally killed by the Yellow-Eyed enemy pride, in a pointless display of intolerance. Buckle up, this graphic and visually stunning films is unlike any other wildlife film you've ever seen.
