Most of the stories we know about the Serengeti have been told through the lens and experience of white, male filmmakers, novelists, and creators. Living With Lions institutes a new tradition, presenting this world-famous wildlife sanctum from a female African filmmaker’s perspective. The film tells the story of a struggle between a lion pride and the Rugari family. Two sister lionesses Ketty and Lucia, desperate to feed their cubs begin stalking the family’s goats. The patriarch, Omosoka, wants to poison the pride who are threatening his livelihood, while his daughter Nyanji will do everything in her power to save the lions. The ensuing story proves both heartbreaking and triumphant.
