A film that shows Anna Breytenbach in action – very quiet, very peaceful – and the spontaneous responses of even the most dangerous animals (abused and mistreated by humans) as they feel truly seen for the first time. Very much worth watching, while it’s available at this site: http://www.cultureunplugged.com/documentary/watch-online/play/11936
Especially the tough guy at the head of a big cat sanctuary who didn’t think Anna could possibly reach their problem leopard… and was reduced, incoherent, to tears when she made it possible for he himself to do so! Check out the walk of the majestic black leopard, Spirit, once he has been “heard” (go to the 48m 09s mark).
This is how we all are, isn’t it, when we are in tune.
