"Return of the Clouded Leopard"
Sandesh Kadur, Producer

Felis Creations
50 minutes
* New York Premiere

Return of the Clouded Leopards follows the work of wildlife photographer Sandesh Kadur and the Wildlife Trust of India veterinarian Dr. Bhaskar Choudhury as they undergo the unique rehabilitation of two orphaned cubs to their jungle home. The cubs are hand-reared and taught to live independently before released back to the jungle. A year later the team unites to search for the cubs. Shy and elusive even cat specialists know very little about clouded leopard habits-can they be taught to live in the wild again?

Sandesh Kadur, Producer
Felis Creations

An isolated region for many years, strictly regulated to anyone from the outside, this pristine wildreness has started to disappear, but through preservation some still exists. These hidden ecosystems are the focus of this series, the Kaziranga, a floodplain and grassland along the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra River


"A Call in the RainForest: Plight of the Lion-tailed Macques"
Sabyasachi Patra, Producer
India Wilds
20 minutes
* World Premiere

The Lion-tailed Macaque (Macaca silenus) is an endangered species according to the IUCN Redlist. It is endemic to the wet evergreen forests of the Western Ghats. The total number of mature Lion-tailed macaques is estimated to be less than 2500 and no sub-population in an area has more than 250 mature individuals. The Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary holds the largest population of the Lion-tailed Macaques.

This film documents and examines the impact of tea-plantations, rapid growth of Valparai town, and its associated ills like boom in tourism, expansion of roads through the forest on one Lion-tailed Macaque sub-population in the Valparai Range of Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary; and calls for action.
