Studium Generale Film & Talk: The Last Male on Earth, with Raf de Bont

On Monday 23 September at 19.30, Studium Generale, in cooperation with Lumière Cinema, will show the documentary ‘The Last Male on Earth’. Raf de Bont, Assistant Professor at FASoS, will give an introduction to the film on the history of extinction.

In March 2018, the last male northern white rhino remaining on earth died. His name was Sudan, and after 42 years on this planet he had lived his life – and that of his species – to the very end. The documentary The Last Male on Earth shows his last years on earth, in which he was not alone. From the time he became the last one, armed bodyguards protected him, tourists queued to have their photo taken with him and journalists rushed to Kenya to tell his story. Even now, scientists are still determined to find a way to reproduce  his species.
