About The Last Male on Earth

The Last Male on Earth is a documentary made by Dutch director Floor van der Meulen and producers Hasse van Nunen and Renko Douze (Een van de Jongens). The documentary centers around Sudan, who was the last male rhinoceros of his species and a tourist sensation in Kenya. Through interviews with visitors to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, his caretakers, and the scientists who are preserving his genetic information, the documentary makes the audience discover what Sudan’s story reveals about why we should care about biodiversity conservation.

The film is co-presented by African Film Festival, Inc.
