Trophy – USA – South Africa (2017)

Directed by:  Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz

Endangered African species like elephants, rhinos and lions march closer to extinction each year. Their devastating decline is fueled in part by a global desire to consume these majestic animals. Trophy investigates the powerhouse industries of big-game hunting, breeding and wildlife conservation. Through the eyes of impassioned individuals who drive these industries – from a Texas-based trophy hunter to the world’s largest private rhino breeder in South Africa – the film grapples with the consequences of imposing economic value on animals. Trophy will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world.

Nominated for the Grand Jury Documentary Prize at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival
