IN HONOR OF WORLD ANIMAL DAY, GENEROUS WILDLIFE SUPPORTER AGREES TO MATCH ALL DONATIONS TO BRING RHINO POACHING WAR FILM TO THE SCREEN LOS ANGELES, CA (October 4, 2017) – Today, in honor of World Animal Day, a generous donor has agreed to match all contributions to a crowdfunding campaign for the film SIDES OF A HORN. Based on actual events, this dramatic film details the rhino poaching epidemic from the perspective of the three characters most directly affected: the ranger, the poacher, and the rhino. The short film is set to begin filming on location in South Africa in early-2018, and a feature-length adaptation is to follow. It is the first film to present an unbiased narrative of South Africa’s rhino poaching war. “The rhino poaching crisis is complex and the conversation around it must go beyond simple right and wrong,” notes the film’s writer and director Toby Wosskow. “That is why our story is crafted in a non-didactic way, exposing both sides of the struggle.” ​ Wildlife crime is the world’s fourth largest illegal industry, and it is at an all-time high. A single rhino horn can fetch up to three hundred thousand U.S. dollars on the black market in China and Vietnam. By weight, it is worth more than gold or cocaine, and this demand in the Far East is fuelling a war on the ground in South Africa. The human death toll is rising, but it is the rhino that faces extinction. “It is a multi-billion dollar trade run by highly-organized international crime syndicates," explains Emmanuel Castis, South African Producer and Conservationist. “But it is the communities on the ground in South Africa that are being torn apart and, for the first time, their story will be told.”
