Shaul Schwarz’s and Christina Clusiau’s documentary, TROPHY, explores the complex heart of contemporary issues of animal conservation and commodification at a time when endangered African species such as elephants, rhinos and lions march ever closer to extinction. Through the eyes of impassioned individuals who drive these industries – from a Texas-based trophy hunter to the world’s largest private rhino breeder in South Africa – the film grapples with the consequences of imposing economic value on animals. What are the implications of treating animals as commodities? Do breeding, farming and hunting offer some of the few remaining options to conserve our endangered animals? Schwarz’s and Clusiau’s richly cinematic safari will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world.
