Citizen Oketch

George and Esther struggle to raise a family in Africa's largest slum. Both are HIV positive but in a way that doesn't count in this doc. HIV has become normal and that's how George and Esther deal with it. This film is rather about love in the middle of a war-torn slum. A film about being African in today's Africa and how, at the lowest denominator, people deal with hardship and can still find life a joy. Citizen Oketch does not demand we pity George's family but rather it throws a potent and refreshing light on human resilience.

Where Have All the Elephants Gone? [electronic resource]: Poaching in Tanzania and Kenya

In Tanzania it's estimated that more than 60 elephants are killed by poachers every day, the ivory from the tusks smuggled out of Dar es Salaam and sent off to markets in places like China, where a demand for ivory trinkets has exploded among the new middle class. Both Tanzania and Kenya vow to stamp out poaching, but enormous profits from the slaughter have corrupted politicians and law enforcement officials alike. This program charts the rapid decline of the African elephant as it investigates the illegal ivory trade that's doing them in. Viewers trek from Tanzania's sanctioned wildlife hunts to the seedy underworld of the poachers' black market, then go to an elephant sanctuary, where wildlife advocate Daphne Sheldrick sadly predicts the imminent extinction of these animals in the wild.
