Predator or Prey: Making The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is a feature-length documentary film about the making of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. It is only included with purchases of the film in 4K UHD or on Blu-ray.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. The world will be watching.
Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
Provincial story, beautifully played out in the spirit of the sinister detective. Dina, the student of Pedagogical Institute, comes to the practice to the little town paralyzed with fear. A series of mysterious murders seemingly dissimilar girls forcing residents to think that it is a work of a maniac.
