Far from urban landscapes and big cities, an archaic sport continues to thrive: hunting exotic animals. Clients of this controversial industry invest fortunes to participate in what they see as tradition (or a harmless hobby), while enriching their private collections with zebras, lions, rhinos – anything goes. For others, animal cadavers provide excellent trade opportunities. Shaul Schwartz and Christina Clusiau’s highly acclaimed film straddles the US and Africa, presenting a complex portrait of the hunting world and its impact on the ecological system. Interwoven with impressive cinematography, a challenging debate evolves: could hunting guarantee the survival of endangered species?
