Trophy is a startling exploration of the evolving relationship between big-game hunting and wildlife conservation that will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world from extinction.
The main problem is that it kicks off on a false assumption. That wild animals are a "nuisance". Quite simply - in 90% of countries that do not allow hunting wild animals are no more of a nuisance that noisy car stereos.
Total waste of time to see it. No spoilers here.
Game farms reduce biodiversity by killing off all snakes, alarm birds, predators, moles, aardvark and any other animal that may spoil a luxury trip for amateur hunters - while keeping only specially bred animals - not found in actual nature.
The film is best summed up in the film's own social media pages that showcases captive breeders and horn traders. It is a glorification of Single-Specie breeding farms such as John Humes dusty breeding facility where he breeds tame rhino without a single thought given to biodiversity.
While the filming is indeed beautiful - Mr Schwarz is very talented - he could have covered other angles too.
