Mountain Patrol: Kekexili
Mountain Patrol: Kekexili is inspired by a people's remarkable mission surrounding the illegal Tibetan antelope poaching in the region of Kekexili, the largest animal reserve in China. The story is brought to the screen with great detail by director Lu Chuan. Set against the exquisite backdrop of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, Chuan tells the tale of brave local Tibetans who face death and starvation to save the endangered antelope herds from a band of ruthless hunters.
What to Watch For
Gut-wrenching realism
National Geographic accuracy
Desperation
Brutality
Finality

Why You Should Watch It
It's important work
It's not Disney
You want to expand your mind
Tibet is being driven to extremes
China is getting involved?!?!
