Video of the Week #66 October 24th, 2012: From: Saving Rhino Phila - A Genre-Busting Documentary on the Massacre of a Species by Carin Bondar at PsiVid. Source: NHU Africa Saving Rhino Phila is Panda award winner from the prestigious WildScreen Film Festival that took place last week in Bristol, UK. Rhinoceros poaching is a massive problem in South Africa. The value of rhino horn has soared to $65,000 per kilogram, making it more expensive than gold. Saving Rhino Phila focuses on the extremely dramatic story of the heroine, a rhinocerous named Phila - and the film unfolds with a completely unique mix of dramatic re-creations and more traditional documentary-style interviews. For more information and a behind the scenes look at the shooting of Saving Rhino Phila, check out the NHU Africa website here.
