The Leica-sponsored film, “Searching for West” is now available for worldwide viewing online at www.leicacamera.com. The epic film captures the conflict faced by new father Mark Seacat, renowned Western big-game hunter and aspiring filmmaker, as he tries to balance his personal hunting goals with his desire to be with his newborn son, West.
The film’s breathtaking cinematography and thought-provoking mood transports viewers to the dramatic mountain vistas and snow-covered timber for a viewing experience like no other.
“This movie is as raw as it can get,” Seacat says. “It shows an emotional story about a man’s journey from hunting all over the world – many days a year – to someone who’s hunting close to his home, focusing on being home and being a father, a husband, a hunter. I feel like almost every hunter can relate to our story.”
In the film, Seacat uses a wide range of Leica equipment on his hunting expeditions. Leica partnered with “Searching for West,” and offered three Leica Geovid 10×42 HD binoculars to lucky winners as part of a giveaway to promote the film.
