Loader, Reina-Marie. Horn. Vienna: Cinéma Humain, 2014. HD, 90 min.

With their horns worth more than gold on the black market, rhino poaching has become the world's third most lucrative crime after drug trading and human trafficking. Unless the practice is curbed, South Africa's entire wild population will be extinct within 10 years. This 'lived' documentary meets a group of trainee rhino monitors, as it explores the social dimension of the crisis that links the fate of these persecuted beasts to that of the South African people.
