The Bozeman Doc Series presents The Velvet Queen
February 17 @ 7:00pm
On Thursday, February 17th, at 7pm at the Emerson, the Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, The Velvet Queen.
In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, renowned nature photographer Vincent Munier guides writer Sylvain Tesson on a quest to document the infamously elusive snow leopard. Munier introduces Tesson to the subtle arts of observing nature and finding the patience to catch sight of the beasts. Through their journey in the Tibetan peaks, the two men find a common appreciation for the world around them and ponder humankind’s place amongst the magnificent creatures and glorious landscapes they encounter along the way. Accompanied by a gorgeous score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, The Velvet Queen is an hypnotic ode to the beauty and power of the natural world.
The Velvet Queen world-premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim.
“Elegant…spellbinding…a lyrical nature documentary more concerned with soulfulness than spectacle.” Variety
“A calming, meditative experience…a project that reaches for something greater than a typical nature documentary. The Velvet Queen is at its strongest when it allows for silence on this gorgeous landscape, using only its mesmerizing score to elevate the imagery into something poetic about the beauty of mother nature.” Rogerebert.com
“Gorgeous, humbling, looking out-, up- and inward, the documentary The Velvet Queen is the rare nature film about not only beauty and beasts but also the very human urge to make sense of our place in it all.” The Los Angeles Times
