The Karkloof Conservancy will host a special screening of the film Sisters of the Wilderness at the Karkloof Country Club on Friday, March 8. All are welcome.
Inspired by the late Dr Ian Player, the film, which follows the healing and transformative journey of five young Zulu women in the wilderness, is set in the natural and cultural heritage gem, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. It highlights the threat to this valuable wilderness and its wildlife – the rhino, elephant and other species.
Sisters of the Wilderness, the social impact feature-length documentary, which recently won best South African Feature Documentary at the Durban International Film Festival and qualifies for an Oscar consideration, is the foundation for an outreach and audience engagement programme that will use multiple communication platforms to raise awareness, inspire, communicate and engage audiences worldwide.
