Tracking an extinction in real time, Kifaru provides a devastating but essential awareness of the consequences of human behaviour. The film documents the final years of the last male northern white rhino, a “kifaru” named Sudan, and the experiences of the rangers that protect and care for him. Its focus on the people surrounding Sudan charges the film with unshakeable human relevance. We witness the rangers’ lives revolving around the rhinos – in their daily routines, their devotion, and their growing anxiety around loss of livelihood in the face of Sudan’s looming mortality. The cinematography lingers, to beautifully capture the Kenyan countryside and the lives within it, providing the film with a contemplative quality that balances its heaviness.
Dedicated to putting the fun back into going to a show or the cinema, the Brunswick Picture House has re-emerged — reimagined and better than ever. Presenting cabarets, live shows, films and a garden kiosk with a delicious menu & great coffee. Kiosk open 1 hr before every event! After laying dormant for over 30 years, the curtains lifted on this old theatre in March 2016 and it began a new lease on life, lovingly restored by the creative team behind the award-winning and internationally acclaimed circus/cabaret sensations LA SOIRÉE and CLUB SWIZZLE. Having survived the wreckers’ ball and the ravages of time, this iconic building’s revival has set the stage for a vibrant and charismatic mix of film, circus, live theatre and family-friendly entertainment. The Brunswick Picture House is a local landmark for the community, for people to meet, be inspired, gossip, laugh and be entertained.
