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.
