It will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the remaining species of the world.
What the press said
"Shot with an ominously gliding camera that revels in the beauty of rhinos, elephants, lions and other rare animals and scrutinizes the map of each face that tells a story in front of it, "Trophy" strives to be kind and fair. But it is unmerciful in its exploration of the hunting business. Like a ruthless lawyer, it loves poking holes in arguments that appear rock-solid." Roger Ebert (rogerebert.com)
"Will enrage and enlighten in equal measure" Variety
"Jaw-droppingly beautiful and applling" IndieWire
"A boggling look inside the world of big game trophy hunting in Africa that provocatively explores the counterintuitive notion that breeding these animals to be killed in some way helps keep their species alive.. Mind-bending." Los Angeles Times
