[edit] Information

This is the story of a puma's life in the wilds of Chile, in a highly acclaimed, prize-winning documentary by wildlife cinematographer Hugh Miles. The elusive puma -- also known as a mountain lion or cougar -- is called the "golden ghost." Seldom seen and rarely photographed, the puma is shown here in the many facets of its life. Hugh Miles lived in the open for two years in Patagonia's remote Torres Del Paine National Park documenting the life of a puma he calls "Penny." The film chronicles Miles' relationship with Penny: how he wins her trust and then follows her as she hunts, mates, gives birth to three cubs, and teaches them about survival against starvation, poaching, and persecution in her beautiful alpine habitat. Shots of other animals in the ecosystem include the gray fox, hare, guanaco, ruddy ducks, and Chilean flamingos. Stunning day and night photography and a lyrical perspective on the conservation of an important link in the ecological chain make this film of special interest to all nature lovers.
