The Kenyan Premiere of Kifaru – an award winning documentary about Sudan, the last male northern white Rhino.

The film is centered on the last male northern white rhino Sudan who died in 2018 rendering the species functionally extinct. It allows viewers to experience the joys and pitfalls of conservation first-hand through the lens of the men that look into the eyes of extinction on a daily basis.

The evening will start off with a reception and drink with the rhino caregivers, a raffle, followed by a silent auction – and will end with the screening. There will also be sale of merchandise throughout the evening.

The primary purpose of this movie première is to raise awareness towards conservation while at the same time, raising critical donations for ranger welfare on Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
