SUDAN – The Last Male Standing is a feature documentary film with exclusive access that follows the lives of two young Kenyan recruits that join Ol Pejeta Conservancy’s rhino caretaker unit, a small group of rangers that care for and protect Sudan, the last male northern white rhino. With the species on the brink of extinction, our two ranger recruits are mentored by a seasoned elder with an unorthodox approach. Spanning over the course of the recruits’ first four years on the job, SUDAN allows viewers to experience the joys and pitfalls of conservation firsthand through the lens of the men that look into the eyes of extinction on a daily basis.
High impact documentaries can make an incredible difference. That’s a fact. When you support SUDAN, you are supporting verité documentary storytelling from the ground level that is intimately exposing what extinction looks like, what it feels like, and whether science can defeat it. The characters in the documentary have granted the team their personal trust and story rights founded on multiple self-funded trips back to Kenya until the production team basically went broke. The team has built lasting relationships with the characters and Kenyan ground team that will outlast the production of this documentary.

A percentage of all donations made to SUDAN: The Last Male Standing go directly towards conservation, particularly in saving the northern white rhinos from extinction.
