When Chris Palmer’s book Shooting in the Wild: An Insider’s Account of Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom was published in 2010, it sparked praise, great interest, & controversy. Exposing the thrilling, yet sometimes tragic, world of wildlife filmmaking, his book revealed a dark side to the industry. In this special evening, Chris discusses the ethics of filmmaking and highlights its worst & best examples with numerous, controversial, high-impact clips from wildlife films.
