Take an intimate glimpse into the journey of a single pangolin, often called a “scaly anteater,” from the moment it is taken from the wild to its final destination in China. Filmed on location across three countries with the help of reformed poachers and wildlife enforcement officers, the film acts as a surrogate for an estimated hundred thousand pangolins that are poached and smuggled annually throughout Southeast Asia and Africa. Filmed with minimal commentary to be as immersive as possible, Pangolin offers audiences the opportunity to experience the life, death and afterlife of one of the most illegally trafficked and endangered mammals on the planet.
