About the event

Poacher, made by Leicestershire born filmmaker Thomas Whitworth, humanises the interconnected lives involved in the elephant extinction crisis.

Casting an eye on both sides of the fence, this suspense thriller thrusts the audience into a world where subsistence farming competes against animal welfare and conservation confronts militarised violence.

This is a single screening Midlands premiere of Poacher.

Dir: Thomas Whitworth

Cast: Davina Leonard, Brian Ogola

UK/Kenya 2018, 30mins
