THE GREAT OUTDOORS
AUSTRIA 2019, 93 min Directors DERECK JOUBERT, BEVERLY JOUBERT
In this stunning visual tapestry, Emmy®-winning filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert (The Last Lions) turn their panoramic lens on Africa’s majestic Okavango River Delta and the incredibly diverse flora and fauna that depend on the river for their sustenance. Beyond their luscious cinematography, the Jouberts bring the Okavango’s story to life by tracking the daily struggles of everything from big cats to elephants, hippos, crocodiles, and many more. The ever-changing fortunes of this menagerie are directly tied to Botswana’s mightiest river and to the life-and-death search for water during the dry season. Unpredictable weather patterns make survival during the dry season all the more dire in this beautiful and cautionary tale of the fragility of one of Earth’s great ecosystems.
DERECK and BEVERLY JOUBERT are award-winning filmmakers, National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, and wildlife conservationists, who have been filming, researching, and exploring in Africa for over 30 years. Their mission is the conservation and understanding of the large predators and other key wildlife species that determine the course of all conservation in Africa. They are the founders of the Big Cats Initiative with National Geographic, which currently funds 65 grants in 23 countries for the conservation of big cats.
