Kifaru follows the lives of two young Kenyan recruits who join Ol Pejeta Conservancy's rhino caretaker unit - a small group of rangers that protect and care for ‘Sudan', the last male northern white rhino in the world.
Spanning over the course of the caretakers' first four years on the job, Kifaru allows viewers to intimately experience the joys and pitfalls of wildlife conservation firsthand through the eyes of these Kenyan rhino caretakers, offering a once in a lifetime experience to feel what extinction feels like never before.
David began this debut feature-length documentary, Kifaru, in May 2015 following a successful crowdfunding effort. Each trip to Kenya while filming David noticed an incredibly intimate bond between these young rhino caretakers & their beloved rhino, Sudan. As years passed, the concern of Sudan’s became increasingly evident on these men’s faces. Bearing witness to the highs and lows, the Kifaru team was exclusively trusted to document some of the most sensitive & historical moments that surround the extinction of the northern white rhinos.
