Official Trailer for Netflix's Important Elephant Doc 'The Ivory Game'
"What have we become if everything we value, everything we care about, we consume…?" The kind of question you should be thinking about every day. Netflix has debuted an official trailer for the documentary The Ivory Game, a powerful and vitally important doc about elephants and the horrors they're suffering at the hands of ivory traders. This is one of the best documentaries you might see all year, it's intense and well-made and pulls you into the story. Not only does this examine the ivory industry and how buyers and sellers are complicit in the poaching of elephants, but it also follows a group of wildlife activists in Africa. They go on a hunt to find and arrest one of the top poachers, and it's riveting to follow them on the journey.
Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Kief Davidson & Richard Ladkani's doc The Ivory Game, from YouTube:
Elephants are disappearing at the staggering rate of 1 every 15 minutes. Their deaths are fueled by the illegal ivory trade, a dangerous network of violence and corruption that a brave and dedicated few are daring to dismantle. The Ivory Game exposes the dark world of ivory trafficking from the planes of Africa to the streets of China. By working with undercover intelligence organizations, activists, frontline rangers and conservationists to infiltrate the corrupt global network of ivory trafficking, the film inspires both outrage and hope. The Ivory Game is co-directed by filmmakers Kief Davidson (Kassim the Dream, Open Heart, A Lego Brickumentary) & Richard Ladkani (The Devil's Miner, Gas Monopoly). This premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals. Netflix will release The Ivory Game streaming on November 4th.
