Milking the Rhino w/ Director David E. Simpson. Movie followed by Q&A with film director. Before the screening, David E. Simpson will host a workshop as part of SUNY Oswego's "On Screen/In Person" program.
The Maasai tribe of Kenya and Namibia’s Himba — two of Earth’s oldest cattle cultures — are in the midst of upheaval. Emerging from a century of ‘white man conservation’ that turned their land into game reserves and fueled resentment towards wildlife, they are now vying for a piece of the wildlife-tourism pie. Charting the collision of ancient ways and western expectations, Milking the Rhino tells intimate, hopeful and heartbreaking stories of people facing deep cultural change.
TICKETS: Adults $7; Seniors $5; Students $3.50. Available from any campus box office or Oswego Cinema.
