African Cats (2011)


This Disney nature documentary follows two different cat families. On one side of the river is a single mother Cheetah trying to raise her cubs alone and protecting them from vicious hyenas. On the other side of the river is a small, but closely-knit lion pride who have to fend themselves off from a another lion (and his three sons) who wants to take over their group. This is one of the best nature documentaries I’ve ever seen because it has a story that was written and performed by nature and shows the brutal reality that is nature. It’s painfully sad, beautifully happy and very compelling. Mixed with great narration by Samuel L. Jackson and stunning camera work, this is a film that should be seen. It really puts “the Circle of Life” in perspective.
