Zeroing in on the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, The Edge of Existence uncovers the urgent story of current human-wildlife conflict in Africa which threatens the survival of the local populations and animals-alike.


Allowing those on the ground to share their lived experiences of a struggling coexistence between wildlife and people, this striking documentary gives voice to both sides of the animal conservation versus human preservation debate, bringing to the forefront a story in urgent need of telling.


Pressing, visceral and insightful, this documentary expertly brings insight, clarity and solutions to a crisis-level global issue.


"... skillfully blends camerawork and editing to present an urgent yet entertaining film... These stunning images juxtapose well with the rawness of the film, bringing a sincerity to the tug-of-war between the human way of life and the power of the African wilderness." | Andreas Damm, Conservation Frontline
