About the film

Award-winning photographers/filmmakers Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson travel the globe with their young son Lysander, capturing scenes from the vanishing natural world. Walking Thunder is their beautiful, poetic and urgent film that weaves a family’s personal journey with interviews and awe-inspiring stories of East Africa’s indigenous people.

The result is an extraordinary look at the world Lysander is inheriting; one beset by climate change and poaching, in which some of its most majestic creatures are threatened with extinction. Through witnessing the family’s moving and eye-opening encounters with both animals and humans, as well as Lysander’s own developing artistry, Walking Thunder shows at once both a world at peril as well as the dreams and resilient hope of a new generation.
