The acclaimed South African documentary, “Stroop – Journey into the Rhino Horn War”, will open the Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam (WFFR) in the Netherlands this evening. The award-winning exposé has been selected from over 200 doccies to open the prestigious annual affair. “Stroop” tells the shocking story of the ongoing poaching of the rhinoceros and the trade in its coveted horn. The passionate duo, Bonné de Bod and Susan Scott, found themselves in danger during the making, filming special ranger units in the Kruger National Park. They also travelled undercover to the back rooms of wildlife traffickers and dealers in China and Vietnam. In recent weeks the hard-hitting film won the Green Tenacity award at the San Francisco Green Film event. It also raked in the Best Documentary Award at the San Diego Film Festival. In Los Angeles, the film scooped the Best Female Filmmakers’ Award at the Glendale Film Festival, as well as the Special Documentary of Focus Award from the city’s premiere festival, L.A Femme. It was further crowned the Best Documentary flick at the San Pedro Film Fest, also held in L.A.
