In March 2018, Sudan died. He was the last male northern white rhinoceros left on earth. Floor van der Meulen's precise, compelling debut feature depicts his last days, spent in protective custody under a constant watch of armed guards and surrounded by a coterie of keepers, journalists, salesmen and scientists, whilst tourists stand in line for photos and the chance to hear his story.
At the centre of this human circus stands Sudan, weary but majestic, a grand monument to the true cost of our own rapacious greed and egotism.
The Last Male on Earth is a moving, tragicomic countdown to extinction.
