A powerfully relatable and emotional arc...
— The Hollywood Reporter
With the northern white rhino species on the brink of extinction, two ranger recruits are mentored by a seasoned ranger with an unorthodox approach to caring for the last northern white rhino male - “Sudan.” 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 IVF programme.
The primary purpose of this movie première is to raise awareness and inspire public support for conservation and to do their part to halt extinction of species all over the world. At the same time, we hope to raise critical donations for ranger welfare on
Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The evening will feature a silent auction, a raffle and sales of merchandise to raise funds for ranger housing on the Conservancy.

The evening will start at 6:30pm with a reception and welcome drink. James, Jacob and Jojo, along with other members of the northern white rhino ranger team will be present. After the movie screening, which is 85 minutes long, we will have a Q&A with the rangers and Richard Vigne, Ol Pejeta's Managing Director. There will then be an additional opportunity to mingle and meet the rangers and the rest of the Ol Pejeta management team.
