Join EarthxFilm for a Movie Monday screening of KIFARU with Director David Hambridge.
In Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy, rangers devote their lives to caring for and protecting Sudan, the last male white rhino, along with Sudan’s daughter and granddaughter. It’s a privilege and duty they take seriously, no matter how fruitless it can seem.
Kifaru follows two young recruits over their first four years on the job as they experience the heartbreak and joy of caring for animals whose fate appears sealed. “Why do we fight and plunder the world until nothing is left?” one ranger asks. “The harder question to answer is, why do we give everything to a cause that seems so hopeless?” This film, which lets viewers experience extinction in real time, helps answer that.
David Hambridge is an Emmy-nominated cinematographer, commercial director and documentary filmmaker based in the U.S. Kifaru is his first feature-length documentary as a director.
