Director Tim Phillips and co-screenwriter Jan Creamer discuss the filming of Lion Ark, their award-winning documentary about rescuing  25 abused African lions and transporting them from Bolivia to Colorado. Phillips and Creamer are co-founders of Animal Defenders International (ADI), the organization behind this remarkable real-life adventure. Others involved in the incredible project are legendary TV host Bob Barker, actress Jorja Fox, and Pat Craig, who founded the Wild Animal Sanctuary. Lion Ark is not a traditional documentary, for sequences were filmed as each part of the story was actually happening, which heightens the movie’s suspense, thrills and surprises. No wonder Lion Ark has already earned a Best Documentary Award from the San Diego Film Festival.
