Global Film Series: Kifaru

August 27, 2019 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The Global Film Series is back and we’re kicking off the semester with KIFARU, a documentary directed by NC State alumnus David Hambridge.

Directed by NC State alumnus David Hambridge, 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 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.

Following the screening, director David Hambridge and Dr. Marsha Gordon from NC State’s Film Studies Department will conduct a question-and-answer discussion with the audience.

This film is part of the Global Film Series, co-presented by the NC State Office of Global Engagement and the NC State University Libraries. This screening of KIFARU is sponsored by NC State’s Film Studies Department.

Free and open to the public.
