Two first-time filmmakers explore the war for rhino horn for the film STROOP. Initially setting out on a six-month project, the duo leave their jobs, sell their homes, even move in with their mothers while they quickly find themselves immersed in a world far larger and more dangerous than they had imagined, only emerging from their odyssey four years later. In this roller-coaster ride between Africa and Asia, the women (Bonné de Bod and Susan Scott) embed themselves on the frontlines of a species genocide where they are given exclusive access to the enforcement aspect of the fight. A harrowing but deeply moving journey of those fighting to keep these iconic animals on our planet.
Peter Eastwood (Executive Producer) and Fiona Gordon (Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand, Ambassador) will be speaking at the showing of this film.
