The Ivory Game

The Hunt for the Hunter Begins
2016 | 112 min | Recommended min. age: 12 y

From executive producer Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Ivory Game” is an epic documentary thriller that goes undercover into the dark and sinister underbelly of ivory trafficking.

Award‐winning director Richard Ladkani and Academy Award®–nominated director Kief Davidson filmed undercover for 16 months in China and Africa with a crack team of intelligence operatives, undercover activists, passionate frontline rangers and tough‐as‐nails conservationists, to infiltrate the corrupt global network of ivory trafficking.

A production from Terra Mater Film Studios and Vulcan Productions, this stunningly photographed exposé follows poachers in pursuit of the “white gold” of ivory. Ultimately, the film becomes an urgent wake‐up call that proves time is running out for the African elephants, dangerously nearing closer and closer to extinction.
