What do you think Sudan may have said to Ringo in this moment? The last male northern white rhino in the world whispering to an orphaned baby southern white rhino who become best friends. 43 years apart in age. . . . . . #kifaruthefilm#thelastmalestanding#documentary#filmmaking#Sudan#Ringo#rhino#wisewords#thelegend#longlivetheking#gentlegiant

What a humbling experience. I (David here) wasn’t able to stay for the awards ceremony but I’m blown away by what the people are saying & the outpouring of support upon winning the Grand Jury Prize Award & The Audience Award! So thankful our film was seen and discovered (finally!) by the masses. This film was never easy to make. It took a lot of sacrifices, both personally and professionally. I want to especially thank those people who selflessly allowed me to put this film’s importance BEFORE everything/everyone else in my life, because I did that (for better or worse). This doc is absolutely a small team effort of love. Sometimes one, two, or at best 3 people working together to keep it moving for 4 years strong. Way too many people to thank at Slamdance, our PR team @dmagpr and friends Submarine Entertainment for guiding us. Big shout to North Carolina we’re bringing this back to @southerndocfund ! Most of all this goes to our rhino caretaker friends in Kenya and everyone who allowed our cameras to be involved in Sudan’s life & legacy @olpejeta and beyond the conservancy gates at our character’s family homes. I believe we made Sudan our old rhino buddy proud, and this is just the beginning! What a great world premiere @slamogram thank you! 🙏🏼🏆🇰🇪🏆🦏• • • If you feel inclined, send a special thank you to @jemu_mwenda@wachira.joseph our friends/film’s characters still on the ground protecting these rhinos @olpejeta and the international team of scientists spearheading the efforts to save them like @mornedelarey & @jan_stejskal_st@safari_park_dvur_kralove they have worked for decades trying to save the northern white rhino from extinction and their work is still moving quickly underway as I write this. Without all of these people trusting in our team and the angle we took, this story would have never been told. • • #slamdance#documentary#filmmaking#grandjuryprizewinner#kifaruthefilm#audienceaward#thelastmalestanding#awardsarenice#rhinosarenicer

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all🎄from the rhino caretakers @olpejeta and those featured in our film here. They continue to protect the last 2 northern white rhinos in the world, Najin & Fatu. This photo of Sudan and the guys was taken by the rhino caretakers: @wachira.joseph & @jemu_mwenda on our @canonusa on #5dmk2 late 2017 - early 2018. They continue to send warm wishes and will always remain the most influential voices in their story of Sudan’s legacy & being a caretaker that witnesseses extinction happen from the ground level. Thanks fellas for sending us warm holiday wishes & heartfelt memories of 2018. . . . . . #documentary#family#happyholidays#merrychristmas#sudan#thelastmalestanding#historyinpictures#lossofalovedone#rhino#kifaruthefilm#wildlifeconservation#science#ivf

James in Hong Kong this week speaking to Chinese youth about Sudan, the northern white rhinos, and what we must learn from Sudan’s legacy. This was his dream since we began filming in 2015 is to spread awareness to the younger generations, and his presence here speaks volumes on how much he’s developed as a humble rhino caretaker to an ambassador of sorts on behalf of @olpejeta ‘s rhino caretakers and rangers in the bush. He made a promise to voice out for Sudan the voiceless, and that’s what he’s doing here this week. We are very proud of James, hard work will always pay off.

2018, March 19th. Within hours, Dr. Morne de La Rey cryogenically freezes Sudan’s DNA. Scientists hope to use the last male northern white rhino’s genetic material to hopefully resurrect the species from their recent ‘natural’ extinction. . . . . . #documentary#filmmaking#extinction#Sudan#NWR#olpejeta#conservation#milestones#science#saveaspecies#humanity#wildlife#historical#moment#IVF#Sudanthefilm#thelastmalestanding#Sudan#rhino

Collaboration & mutual respect are always the key - but that is especially so in these very fragile days. It’s moving to see the level of love Sudan’s caretakers pour into him day & night.
