The Ivory Game Premieres at TIFF
Netflix announced last week that it will be premiering The Ivory Game, an original documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
The Ivory Game is an undercover feature-documentary, set to expose the dark world of ivory trafficking. Award-winning director Richard Ladkani and Academy Award® nominated director Kief Davidson filmed undercover for 16 months, moving across the continents of Africa and Asia, infiltrating and documenting the deep-rooted corruption at the heart of the global ivory trafficking crisis.
Their cameras follow a band of remarkable heroes; from intelligence organizations, such as the Tanzanian Task Force, freedom-of-information groups like WildLeaks, undercover activists, high-level conservationists and frontline rangers. Together they take on the fight, to bring down poachers, traffickers and corrupt government officials.
A torch-bearing film, The Ivory Game will inspire both outrage and hope, marking a turning point in mankind’s relationship with the greatest land mammal on Earth. Vulcan Productions and Red Bull’s Terra Mater Film Studios have joined forces to create this feature-length documentary film and expose the ultimate fight for our last remaining elephants.
Produced by Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen’s company, Vulcan Productions, this documentary highlights their mission of philanthropy, story and technology.
This documentary will be available on Netflix starting November 4.
