Ani Wa Sa (We Are One)
Garamba National Park is globally recognized as ground zero in Africa’s poaching wars. Fewer than 1,200 elephants remain. Two brothers who come from a line of Zande hunters pursue protecting their forest from diametrically opposed avenues: one through tradition and the other as part of Garamba’s militarized ranger team. Though their relationship has fractured, an advancing rebel group poses a mutual threat, and they may need each other to protect Congo’s people and animals for generations to come. This film is being used in an innovative on-the-ground mobile cinema effort in central Africa to bring communities together to dialogue about using conservation and human security to protect both people and animals in this fragile and interdependent ecosystem.
