Unlikely adoption among animals, both wild and domestic, make for lighthearted and exceedingly popular news stories.

Canon’s Short Film, ‘Man and Beast,’ Portrays the Life of Panthera’s CEO, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz

Panthera

Canon recently released a short film entitled ‘Man and Beast’ that portrays the life of Panthera’s CEO and wild cat expert, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, including why he has devoted his career to saving the world’s wild cats. Produced with a new and technologically advanced Canon Cinema EOS camera, the ten minute beautifully shot film features a powerful depiction of Dr. Rabinowitz’s childhood, during which he was faced with a debilitating stutter and sought solace in speaking to animals, that also had no voice. The film then moves on to portray Dr. Rabinowitz’s young adult life when he dedicated his career to saving and giving a voice to animals.

Watch the film here.
