THE LAST LIONS

Fifty years ago there were close to half-a-million lions in Africa. Today there are around 20,000. To make matters worse, lions, unlike elephants, which are far more numerous, have virtually no protection under government mandate or through international accords. This is the jumping-off point for a well-researched and beautifully made cri de coeur from husband and wife team Dereck and Beverly Joubert, award-winning filmmakers from Botswana who have been Explorers-in-Residence at National Geographic for more than four years.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, THE LAST LIONS, a National Geographic Entertainment Release, opens commercially in San Diego on March 11th at Landmark's La Jolla Village and Hillcrest Cinemas.

Rated PG for some violent images involving animal life.

Running Time: 88 Minutes

PLEASE NOTE: This event takes place on a Wednesday.
