Counterpoise Collective Presents: Milking the Rhino

Published Jimmy - Wed, 06/02/2010 - 4:54pm

"Milking the Rhino" examines the deepening conflict between humans and animals in an ever-shrinking world. It is the first major documentary to explore wildlife conservation from the perspective of people who live with wild animals. Shot in some of the world’s most magnificent locales, "Rhino" offers complex, intimate portraits of rural Africans at the forefront of community-based conservation: a revolution that is turning poachers into preservationists and local people into the stewards of their land.
