Blood Lions, the Sad Reality of Lions Bred in Captivity in South Africa, at UNPHU

September 17, 2016

Santo Domingo – DREFF, an initiative of GFDD / Funglode screened this year the documentary Blood Lions, directed by the South African Nick Chevalier. During its presentation at UNPHU University, last September 16, the film held captive the young students, from start to finish, impressed with this true story. Breeding lions for slaughter in South Africa is big business. Over 1000 captive-bred, hand-reared lions were killed in the country last year, fueling a multimillion-dollar international industry.

The screening took place in the rainy twilight of Friday September 16 in the projection room of building 4 at UNPHU, with a massive attendance of students from different careers. After the screening, Nick Chevalier, special guest of DREFF, answered questions from the audience about the making of this difficult documentary.

Since its creation in 2011, the Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival (DREFF) –an initiative of the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and the Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (Funglode) – has been providing Dominicans with a platform of knowledge and debate on the environment and sustainable development, along with its challenges and best practices, while celebrating the unique beauty and wealth that is the Dominican Republic’s natural heritage.
