The negligent actions of mankind have become the responsibility of a small rhino caretaker unit at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. Kifaru follows the extinction of a species through the eyes of two young Kenyan rangers that have knowingly taken on the hopeless mission of caring for the world’s last male northern white rhino, ’Sudan’, and the unwavering commitment they make to provide care, comfort and compassion for a creature living on borrowed time. With exclusive access to the subject matter, Director, David Hambridge, delivers a never before seen glimpse into one of the most discussed global headlines in recent years. Kifaru invites the viewers to feel the impact of extinction as the characters experience the loss of the species they’ve devoted their lives to, while providing hope that unprecedented scientific methods can bring the species back from the brink of extinction.
