Description



Wild DaZe is a feature-length documentary from filmmaker, Phyllis Stuart who created a powerful cinematic call to action to address the threats facing species who depend on biodiversity, including our own. 

 Audiences will not just fall in love with Africa as they journey across ten countries on the vast continent, but viewers will also see how crime and corruption fuels an annual $20 billion, illegal wildlife trade that produces an unnatural disaster impacting our entire planet.

 Not only are animals being driven to the brink of extinction but humans living with the wildlife are also being exploited and displaced. This illegal wildlife trade is driven by many factors including unbridled crime and corruption, armed insurgents, trophy hunting, the pet trade, the bush meat trade and an insatiable consumer demand for natural resources.

 Set in Sub-Saharan Africa, this gorgeous documentary reveals personal conservation stories set against a backdrop of the dire and pressing environmental ecocide. Since human beings are dependent on nature when we work to save nature, and non-humans, we are really working to save ourselves. Since human survival hangs in balance, we must decide whether we see ourselves as superior, as custodians, as entitled consumers or as a part of a delicate ecosystem.

Employing mesmerizing visuals captured by brilliant wildlife photographers and seasoned cinematographers, aided by powerful narration from Emmy-winning actor, Keith David, and bolstered by a bold musical score from Emmy-winning composer, Lolita Ritmanis, Wild DaZe shares the unvarnished truth about our tenuous relationship with nature.
