Stroop is a documentary created by two filmmakers who explore the war for rhino horn, a commodity now worth more than its weight in gold. Initially setting out on a six-month project, the duo leave their jobs, sell their homes, move in with their mothers and give up nearly four years of their lives to document not just the rhinos, but the various people connected to this iconic animal.
In this roller-coaster ride between Africa and Asia, the two filmmakers embed themselves on the frontlines of a species genocide where they are given exclusive access to the enforcement aspect of the fight.
Sides of a Horn is the first film to tell the story of Africa’s poaching war from both sides of the fence.
Based on actual events, and filmed in the townships and game reserves most directly impacted by wildlife crime, this dramatic short film paints a balanced portrait of a modern battle that is tearing communities apart and driving the rhino to the edge of extinction.
