Broken Tail

Crossing the Line Films   |   Ireland

One of the world's leading tiger cameramen travels through India on a personal pilgrimage, piecing together the extraordinary last journey of Broken Tail - one of the planet's most famous wild tigers. Colin Stafford-Johnson spent almost 600 days filming Broken Tail & his family for some of the finest tiger documentaries ever made. In order to make this documentary all the footage of Broken Tail throughout his life had to be sourced from a wide range of companies and agencies. The film would not have been possible without the wonderful footage of Broken Tail from cub right through to his last days as an adult, as well as the fascinating older archive of tiger hunts in the time of the Maharajahs, newspaper headlines from the time of Broken Tail's death and the many still images people took of him.
