On Screen/In Person Continues: “Milking the Rhino” 4/17/12

10 April 2012

On Tuesday, April 17 at 7 pm, the On Screen/In Person documentary wraps up for this season with Milking the Rhino. Director David E. Simpson will be in attendance and lead a question and answer session after the screening at the Oswego Cinema 7 (138 West 2nd Street).

The Maasai tribe of Kenya and Namibia’s Himba, two of the oldest cattle cultures, are in the midst of upheaval. Emerging from a century of ‘white man conservation’ that turned their land  into game reserves and fueled resentment towards wildlife, they are now vying for a piece of the wildlife-tourism pie. Charting the collision of ancient ways and Western expectations, the film tells intimate, hopeful, and heartbreaking stories of people facing deep cultural change.

Tickets are $7 (adults), $5 (seniors), and $3.50 (students)–available online at tickets.oswego.edu or at the theatre box office.
