Attend A Free DC Screening w/ Q&A For 'Trophy'


We're happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free advance screening of the important new documentary, Trophy. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Alex Dehgan, CEO and Co-Founder of Conservation X Labs. The following participants will join the panel discussion: Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau, TROPHY filmmakers; Chris Moore, TROPHY subject and anti-poaching agent from Zimbabwe; Sue Lieberman, VP of International Policy at Wildlife Conservation Society.

SYNOPSIS: Endangered African species like elephants, rhinos and lions march closer to extinction each year. Their devastating decline is fueled in part by a global desire to consume these majestic animals. Trophy investigates the powerhouse industries of big-game hunting, breeding and wildlife conservation. Through the eyes of impassioned individuals who drive these industries – from a Texas-based trophy hunter to the world’s largest private rhino breeder in South Africa – the film grapples with the consequences of imposing economic value on animals. What are the implications of treating animals as commodities? Do breeding, farming and hunting offer some of the few remaining options to conserve our endangered animals? Trophy will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world.

The screening takes place tomorrow, September 6th at Landmark E Street Cinema at 7:00pm. If you'd like to attend, simply register for your free passes here. Please remember that having passes does not guarantee entry as all screenings are first come first served. You'll want to arrive at the theater early to ensure receiving a seat. Enjoy the show!

Trophy opens in DC on September 15th.
