Film: KIFARU (rhino in Swahili)/Multi-Award-Winner with Director David Hambridge for Q&A via Skype
Unable to roam freely because of the rampant poaching that has reduced their subspecies from thousands to a few, Sudan, the world’s only remaining male northern white rhino, his daughter Najin, and his granddaughter Fatu are under armed guard 24/7. Even at the brink of extinction, hope remains, thanks to three incredible caretakers and a host of others bent on both preventing and recovering loss. In this multi-award winning, visually and emotionally beautiful film KIFARU (rhino in Swahili), director David Hambridge gives witness to the humane and loving care taking of Jacob, James, and JoJo, rangers at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. Jacob runs and plays with Najin and Fatu. JoJo sits vigil when Sudan begins to ail. And through the gentle ministrations of a mud bath and the faint singing and words of comfort James provides Sudan, we see hope in the collective power of community, care, and understanding.
Time: 79 Minutes
Our guest speaker for the Q&A will be director of the film David Hambridge via Skype.
