Tiger 24: The Making of a Man-Eater

Director: Warren Pereira

When a wild tiger kills men who enter his territory, he is declared a man-eater and locked up in a zoo. This galvanizes massive social uproar and activists take their cause to the streets, online, and all the way to the Supreme Court.

Living in a space between nature and true crime documentary, Tiger 24 is in a class all its own. Counting Tiger King’s Carole Baskin among one of its most vocal advocates, it “… is a compelling and dramatic story for animal lovers and fans of crime procedurals” (Film Threat). “Even shorn of its subtexts, Tiger 24 contains intimate, unguarded footage of large predators that would make David Attenborough green with envy” (Oregon Arts Watch).
