(81 min) Kenya/US
[watch trailer]

Director: David Hambridge
Producer: Andrew Harrison Brown

Description:

Kifaru is a feature-length documentary that follows the lives of two young, Kenyan recruits who join Ol Pejeta Conservancy's rhino caretaker unit—a small group of rangers that protect and care for Sudan, the last male northern white rhino in the world. Spanning over the course of the caretakers first four years on the job, Kifaru allows viewers to intimately experience the joys and pitfalls of wildlife conservation firsthand through the eyes of these Kenyan rhino caretakers who witness  extinction happening in real-time.

Biography:

David Hambridge is an Emmy-nominated cinematographer & award-winning filmmaker based in the American South. Upon witnessing the concern that surrounded Sudan’s fate, the Kifaru team was exclusively trusted to document some of the most sensitive & historical moments that surround the extinction of the northern white rhinos. Four years have passed as David and his team have filmed alongside Ol Pejeta’s rhino caretakers during moments of profound love and loss. David took an unorthodox approach by focusing on the livelihoods and families that are attached to an animal teetering on the edge of extinction.
