The Velvet Queen (out Nov 10) is a documentary which follows a nature photographer and a writer as they travel to Tibet to explore the terrain and its wildlife. The "holy grail" will be to catch a glimpse of the reclusive snow leopard which lives high atop the mountain peaks. Relying largely on imagery and music, it's not a life-changing doco but it reminds us of the many beautiful, fascinating animals we share the planet with. Grade: B.
