‘KIFARU’ is a feature documentary film that follows the lives of two young, Kenyan recruits that join Ol Pejeta Conservancy’s rhino caretaker unit - a small group of seasoned rangers that care for and protect Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, and the last two females. With the species on the brink of extinction, our two ranger recruits are mentored by a seasoned elder with an unorthodox approach. Spanning over the course of the recruits’ first four years on the job, ‘KIFARU’ allows viewers to experience the joys and pitfalls of conservation firsthand through the lens of the men that look into the eyes of extinction on a daily basis.
Journeying beyond the global headlines that have accumulated around Sudan’s life and explores the painful emptiness of extinction. Teetering on borrowed time and with his health in decline, Sudan’s looming death hangs over the heads of the caretakers’ lives. Their only hope to save the species that they love and the means for their mutual survival is a last resort DNA cloning experiment.
