THE BLACK MAMBA'S ANTI POACHING UNIT Constantly plagued by rhino poachers, The Greater Kruger National Park is home to the largest population of rhino in South Africa. The Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit, an almost entirely female team and the first of its kind in the world, believes the war on poaching will not be won with guns and bullets, but through local communities and education.



'I LOVE THIS. Beautifully made and very moving - it made me sad and angry and proud and thoughtful = everything a film should be.' - Judge's Comments

THE QUIET REBEL + Q&A The Quiet Rebel tells the story of unassuming artist Casey Jenkins, the outraged online public reaction to her controversial art installation and her way of coping with the unheralded media storm and social media bullying that brings the public to question their own beliefs - which is exactly what good art can do.

The film's award-winning director Carole Cassier will be attending the screening and giving a Q&A at the end of her documentary to answer audience questions on this incredible work.
