A hurried man walks on the concrete. He jumps on the transportations.
He litterally seeks to leave from this noisy city, from this tight suit. He gets on an ageless train.
The key he plays with, alternately anxious and contemplative, intrigues.
At the end of this trip, he finds himself facing what nature has best to offer.
We’ll know nothing about him. The journey can begin.

Cheetahs are the fastest runners on the planet. Combining the resources of National Geographic Magazine and the Cincinnati Zoo, and drawing on the skills of an incredible crew, we documented these amazing cats in a way that’s never been done before.
Using a Phantom camera filming at 1200 frames per second while zooming beside a sprinting cheetah, the team captured every nuance of the cat’s movement as it reached top speeds of 60+ miles per hour.
The extraordinary footage that follows is a compilation of multiple runs by five cheetahs during three days of filming.
