The Ivory Game is an undercover feature-documentary, set to expose the dark world of ivory trafficking.
The African elephant faces extinction as poachers wreak slaughter in pursuit of the ‘white gold’ of ivory, considered a symbol of luxury and power amongst the new rising Chinese middle-class.
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, intelligence gathering and whistle-blowing initiatives 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.
“This is the bleakest time for elephants. The statistics on the plight of Africa’s elephants is daunting. I’m devoted to supporting new endeavors which provide meaningful science to help reverse this decline and to reduce the variability in elephant population statistics.”
