Netflix is taking us to the frontline in the fight to save the African elephants this winter, with new documentary The Ivory Game.
Recently premiered to acclaim at both the Telluride and Toronto International Film Festivals, the film was just announced as the 2016 winner of the WWF Golden Panda Award at the Wildscreen Festival – the international wildlife film and TV industry’s highest accolade.
From executive producer Leonardo DiCaprio, Netflix’s original documentary is an epic thriller that goes undercover into the dark and sinister underbelly of ivory trafficking. Award-winning director Richard Ladkani and Academy Award–nominated director Kief Davidson filmed undercover for 16 months in China and Africa with a crack team of intelligence operatives, undercover activists, passionate frontline rangers and tough-as-nails conservationists, to infiltrate the corrupt global network of ivory trafficking.
The exposé follows poachers in pursuit of the ‘white gold’ of ivory, a warning that time is running out for the African elephants, as they get closer and closer to extinction.
The Ivory Game is released by Netflix worldwide on Friday 4th November. For more on what’s coming soon to Netflix in November, click here.
