Documentary Events presents Sides of a Horn
Did you know that in parts of Asia, people pay a higher price for a pound of rhino horn than they would pay for a pound of gold or cocaine? Their irrational demand for a substance no different from human fingernails is fueling an ideological battle on the ground in South Africa.
Many South Africans living near the country's declining rhino populations face the heart-breaking decision of living in crippling poverty or aiding and abetting the global trade in rhino horn and other illegal wildlife products.
Sides of a Horn is a short film produced by Sir Richard Branson. This film tells the story of Africa's rhino poaching war from both sides of the fence. There will be a Q&A afterwards with writer/director Toby Wosskow and CEO of African Wildlife Foundation, Kaddu Sebunya.
