Hunting high and low

TROPHY is a startling investigation into the relationship between big game trophy hunting and wildlife conservation. Can money-fueled breeding and hunting in reservations be part of the solution to the ever declining numbers of wild animals? Or is it a main part of the problem itself? In this surprising and thought-provoking documentary we meet both the hunters and the activists who want to ban their practice. The result is a broad exploration of a complex issue, that forces the audience to reexamine their own views.
