STROOP – a documentary every single person needs to see!
Johannesburg, South Africa – Two women left their jobs, sold their homes, moved in with their parents and worked for four years to make a film about Rhino Poaching… and the documentary keeps winning incredible international accolades!
Bonné de Bod and director Susan Scott risked their lives, placing themselves in incredible danger to document the war on rhino poaching. They planned to tell a story so brutal and heartbreaking, all to spread one message… That rhino poaching must stop.
The film looks into the dark underworld of rhino poaching, where the need for the horn comes from and how people on the frontline of the war are fighting to stop poachers in their tracks.
‘In an exclusive first, de Bod and Scott filmed special ranger units inside the world-famous Kruger National Park and at the home of the white rhino, the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park and travelled undercover to the dangerous back rooms of wildlife traffickers and dealers in China and Vietnam. The result is a hard-hitting and moving film that challenges and shocks.
Through unprecedented footage, Scott and de Bod have created a stunning, independent film made with crowdfunding and grants, that shows why this hunted and targeted species deserves to live in dignity, free from exploitation by illegal traders, poachers, money men and corrupt governments.’
Their documentary film called ‘STROOP: Journey into the Rhino Horn War’ has been shown on screens across the globe and became big South African news after winning incredible international awards and they have joined the Good Things Guy Jacpod in the studio today to chat about it.
