The film A YEAR OF HUNTING is a tale of six hunters who have chosen to pursue hunting by using a bow and arrows and by doing so, to return to the very core
of what hunting is all about.
The documentary is a tale of friends with different life stories bound by the same passion: bowhunting and their pursuit to have a deeper understanding of
They are all different, yet they share the same dream: to get so up close and personal to a game animal, you can see the white in its eyes.
The film consists of six individual episodes following bowhunting in Slovakia during a course of twelve months.
Individual hunting adventures are presented like puzzles. They are made up of expectations, hopes, euphoria, as well as one’s disappointment realizing that true
success can only come with dedicated practice and preparation.
Their stories introduce us to their bowhunting experiences as well as them as people -– hunters for whom bowhunting offers an opportunity to learn about
themselves and to follow their lifelong dream. The documentary captures hunting for a wild turkey, roe deer, wild boar, red deer, fallow deer, and a mouflon.
