 DAVID HAMBRIDGE | DIRECTOR, Producer & cinematographER

David is an Emmy┬« nominated cinematographer & award-winning commercial + documentary filmmaker based in the US.  He began filming KIFARU in 2014.

For years David has filmed with the rhino caretakers closest to Sudan at Ol Pejeta Conservancy, empowering their voices and exposing their character during moments of profound love and painful loss.  Upon developing mutual trust and access with these Kenyan men, David wanted to tell this story with an unorthodox style by focusing on the livelihoods and relationships that surround an animal teetering on the edge of extinction. David believes the loss to extinction should be not only be witnessed by the entire world, but it should be felt.  With KIFARU, David shares not only the lives of those closest to the last male standing, but the legacy and lessons that will live on well past Sudan's last breath.
