Mountain Patrol

90 min.
Kekexili, the largest animal reserve in China, is home to many rare species, including the Tibetan antelope. Prized for its skin that is used in making luxurious, albeit illegal, shahtoosh scarves, the antelope’s numbers have been dwindling drastically in the past 20 years as poachers slaughter the animals, often hundreds at a time. In the 1990s local Tibetans formed a volunteer patrol to try to stop the illegal poaching – sometimes at the cost of their own lives. Mountain Patrol is a fast-paced adventure feature based on this land and wildlife at the precipice.
