The Monte-Carlo Television Festival will host the premiere screening of an investigative documentary as part of their collaboration with the Prince Albert II Foundation.


Unveiling a shocking truth, Lions, Bones & Bullets is a documentary getting to the bottom of lion hunting. Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, in a mission to understand where the virus came from, many people have been focusing on the animal trade. As such, Lions, Bones & Bullets is exposing the truth behind lion hunting. Throughout the documentary, they reveal how “lion trophy hunting” has really been a cover-up for the domestication of African wildlife, for use in Chinese medicine, for many, many years.

Richard Peirce, a producer passionate about wildlife, has carried out his investigation from lion farms in South Africa all the way to Southeast Asian traffickers.
