NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
The Ivory Game exposes the dark world of ivory trafficking. Ivory is a prized status symbol for middle-class Chinese, and poachers in pursuit of “white gold” are slaughtering African elephants in record numbers.
Award-winning director Richard Ladkani and Academy Award-nominated director Kief Davidson filmed undercover for 16 months infiltrating and documenting the deep-rooted corruption at the heart of the global ivory trafficking crisis.

“Moments like that lend “The Ivory Game” a pervasive air of sadness within its urgency. But perhaps, as in other recent animal-advocacy documentaries—“Blackfish” (about abuses at SeaWorld) and “The Cove” (about Japanese dolphin hunting)—the resulting feeling of outrage will spur viewers into action.” – Christy Lemire.
