The unique documentary will cover poaching and the wildlife trade from the perspective of rangers and the community. We will get to see the rangers as fathers, neighbors, sons, and how they live in the midst of the poaching crisis.
The title "Trophy Games" comes from two different conversations Brown had. The first was with a Maasai man who said he didn't think poaching was all that bad because people have made hunting a game for years. Killing animals was a way that you showed your community that you could provide and protect.
The other conversation was during a phone call Brown had with a conservation worker in Asia. She explained the Asian demand for ivory and rhino horn as if they were cherished trophies; symbols of wealth and accomplishment. Furthermore, she referred to the global policies surrounding ivory bans as just a collection of "trophy games" that many government officials like to play as if it was nothing serious.
