The Lord of the Night: The Eagle Owl

201152 mins

The eagle owl is the most powerful nocturnal bird of prey on the Iberian Peninsula. Its great scope and versatility allows it to hunt innumerable species and to move silently in diverse ecosystems.

At night there are an enormous number of animals that meander under the dark Iberian sky, all of them working under the same premise – to eat without being eaten. Little owls, toads, frogs, foxes, wild boars, deer, wolves and a seemingly endless number of species have adapted their senses to move through the darkness.

The eagle owl keeps the same mate its whole life and strategically places its nest in cliffs to control its prey and potential predators.

With special infrared hidden cameras, the documentary follows the evolution of an eagle owl’s nest, witnessing its behavior in the most absolute intimacy, and high-speed cameras discover the secrets of the stealth flight for hunting of the absolute Lord of the Night.
