Still in its infancy, Baxu and the Giants film is making strides not only for the film cast but for Namibia. Today, the short film premiers at the San Francisco Independent Short Film Festival for the first time. speaking to unwrap.online, the film director Florian Schott says they had a vision of spreading the film to everyone, everywhere.

“Our aim was always to follow two paths with this film. We want to bring it to Namibian audiences, bring it to the public, to schools, to villages with teenagers most likely to be affected, and also spread the word throughout the world, showing the film at festivals and highlighting this urgent issue outside of Namibia, he says.

The Namibian short film Baxu and the Giants, tells the story of how rhino poaching triggers the social change in a village in Damaraland. Through this storytelling device, which spans the time between the age of hunters and gatherers to present day, the film aims to reach an audience worldwide and for audiences to understand some of the underlying social issues in rural Namibia that can lead to poaching.
