“When Lambs Become Lions,” a new documentary about African elephant poaching, reveals the fight to protect these animals is far more complicated than one would imagine.
The official trailer for the documentary shows the fight from both perspectives.
Director Jon Kasbe spent years embedded with both a small-time ivory dealer who is willing to break the law to provide for his family as well as a man willing to put elephant lives over human life and who operates like no ordinary conservation ranger.
Executive produced by Matthew Heineman, director of the Oscar-nominated “Cartel Land,” the documentary is shot similar to Heineman’s films with striking, slick cinematography befitting a fictional wartime thriller.
A release date has not been announced for “When Lambs Become Lions.”
