Wildcat Review :

I highly recommend the documentary Wildcat! This incredibly moving and very important documentary takes place in the remote Amazon jungles of Peru. Focused on Harry Turner a former English Army soldier struggling with PTSD & major depression after tours in Afghanistan, and Samantha Zwicker, an intelligent, compassionate, and driven scientist working to help conserve wildlife in one of the harshest areas of the world. Harry and Sam are both incredibly brave, courageous and brutally honest young people struggling with their personal demons while also seeking redemption in their work, not only to do the important work of helping the animals but also themselves. Heartbreaking, yet beautiful, positive and hopeful. A riveting and very moving film that will bring up many strong emotions. Keep your tissues handy! There’s so much for everyone to learn from this incredible film. A must see!!

This documentary popped up onto my recommendation list as I love anything wildlife related. Without giving anything away to anyone who hasn’t watched it, you will be amazed. You’re emotions will be all over the place, quite how that young man managed to say goodbye and leave Keanu is heartbreaking. Just wished they’d have taken a DNA sample and who knows, sometime in the future, they could test wild Ocelots and see is any are decendants of Keanu.
