The Namibian Scientific Society (NSS) and the Namibia Environment and Wildlife Society (NEWS) along with the DHPS Alumni Association recently hosted a screening of the Namibian movie Baxu and the Giants, and in this way managed to raise N$11 000 for the Save the Rhino Fund (SRT). A large audience turned up for the screening of the short film about rhino poaching as seen through the eyes of 9-year-old Baxu. The young actress Camilla Jo-ann Daries who portrays the character of the title role, stood in the spotlight at the screening alongside director and co-writer Florian Schott, co-writer and co-producer Girley Jazama and producer Andrew Botelle. Pictured here FLTR are Waltraut Fritzsche (NSS), Willem Odendaal (Legal Assistance Centre), John Pallett (NEWS), Maxi Louis (SRT), Tina Crüys (DHPS), Andrew Botelle and Carola Risser (DHPS Alumni Association).
