Two first-time filmmakers explore the war for rhino horn. Initially setting out on a six-month project, the duo leave their jobs, sell their homes, move in with their mothers and give up nearly four years of their lives to document not just the rhinos but the various people connected to this iconic animal.
This award winning film premiered at the San Francisco Green Film Festival in September 2018 scooping their Green Tenacity Award for courageous filmmaking and the film went on to win a further 30 awards at over 40 film festivals, many of them the Best Documentary Award. Officially selected for nearly twenty film festivals and playing to sold-out cinema screenings, the film has also won critical acclaim.
