Kifaru

United States/Kenya, 2019, 79 min, Colour

KIFARU është një dokumentar i metrazhit të gjatë që ndjek jetët e dy rekrutëve nga Kenia të cilët i bashkohen njësisë së rojeve të rinoqerontëve të zonës së ndaluar pyjore Ol Pejeta – një grup i vogël i rojtarëve që e mbrojnë dhe kujdesen për Sudanin, mashkulli i fundit në botë i rinoqerontëve të bardhë verior. Duke u endur përgjatë katër viteve të para në punë të rojeve, KIFARU lejon shikuesit të përjetojnë në mënyrë intime gëzimin dhe kurthet e konservimit të jetës së egër direkt përmes syve të këtyre rojeve keniane të cilët në kohë reale bëhen dëshmitarë të zhdukjes.
