I Am Lion

This documentary is the first to explore consciousness in a lion. What it is like to be a lioness? The film takes viewers on an emotional roller-coaster ride through human history and perception, as a young lioness, born in a cage and with no lion role models to learn from, slowly gains the knowledge and understanding to navigate her way through captivity, contact with a human, and experiences in the natural world to fulfil her own natural potential in a unique quest for individual independence. A remarkable story, which unfolds in many different directions. It sits at a crossroads of cognition, animal behaviour, consciousness, psychology, neuroscience and neuropsychology, and succeeds in making complex scientific concepts accessible to a broad and varied audience.
