Extinction is Forever




 

The EarthX  Film August Movie Monday series present a screening of the documentary film Kifaru, with Director David Hambridge in attendance, from 7 to 9 p.m., August 26, at the Magnolia Theater. There will be virtual and augmented reality experiences in the lobby.

In Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy, rangers devote their lives to caring for and protecting Sudan, the last male white rhino, along with Sudan’s daughter and granddaughter. It’s a privilege and duty they take seriously, no matter how fruitless it can seem. Kifaru follows two young recruits over their first four years on the job as they experience the heartbreak and joy of caring for animals whose fate appears sealed.

Hambridge is an Emmy-nominated cinematographer, commercial director and documentary filmmaker based in the U.S. Kirafu is his first feature-length documentary as a director.

 

Admission is free. Location: 3699 McKinney Ave., Dallas. For tickets, eventbrite.com/e/earthxfilm-presents-kifaru-tickets-65813665445.
