Save the species, at what cost?
"Trophy" is a documentary by Shaul Schwarz that deals with the problems of hunting in the USA and Africa. The film celebrated its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017 and asks questions such as whether breeding and artificial reproduction will increase the number of living animals again, which is why people think they have the right to decide on the life and death of a living being and, ultimately, whether there is any chance of Mother Nature continuing to exist in our constantly evolving, capitalist world.

"A boggling look inside the world of big game trophy hunting in Africa that provocatively explores the counterintuitive notion that breeding these animals to be killed in some way helps keep their species alive.. Mind-bending." – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Whatever your assumptions about these issues, this deeply intelligent analysis will make you look deeper and think again. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star-Tribune
