Film Description:
"In this parable, a hungry fox hunts for his dinner one night in the jungle. Nearby is a tiger who is also pondering his next meal. The tiger catches the fox, but the cunning fox manages to outwit the proud tiger. This striking film uses cutouts and actors in masks to tell its tale. It will stimulate discussion on leadership qualities, such as brain versus brawn, on values and on conflict resolution."
