Trophy


Dir. Shaul Scharwz, Christina Clusiau | UK / Namibia / South Africa / Zimbabwe / USA | 108 min | cert 15

"The macabre ultra-luxury sport of ‘canned’ trophy hunting in Africa comes under unflinching scrutiny in a documentary to make your blood boil" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Trophy explores the complex heart of contemporary issues of animal conservation and commodification at a time when endangered African species march ever closer to extinction. As Africa’s most iconic animals continue to vanish in droves, can the controversial practices of hunting and breeding actually help the numbers thrive?
 
Can assigning a value to an animal possibly help conserve it? What gives humans the right to own animals and to decide whether they live or die? And is there any real future for a “natural” world in our rapidly developing, capitalist world?
 
Tickets: £7.50 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
