3:30-4:50 pm When Lambs Become Lions. Jon Kasbe. USA, 2018, 79 min.

In the Kenyan bush, a small-time ivory dealer fights to stay on top while forces mobilize to destroy his trade. When he turns to his younger cousin, a conflicted wildlife ranger who hasn?t been paid in months, they both see a possible lifeline. Director Jon Kasbe followed the film?s subjects over a three-year period, gaining an extraordinary level of access and trust as he became part of their everyday lives. The result is a rare and visually arresting look through the perspectives and motives of the people at the epicentre of the conservation divide.
