Synopsis

White Gold is a front-line expose of the modern day ivory trade - its effect on African countries and wider regional stability, its potential to fund terrorism and its global reach. Produced by professionals from the conservation, filmmaking and security fields, the film illustrates the awe-inspiring complexity, beauty and emotional intelligence of the elephant, Africa's most majestic and iconic wild animal. It documents how, as the demand for ivory escalates, the stakes rise for elephants, people and peace. And, amid growing speculation from analysts around the world that ivory is likely to have partially funded the September 2013 terrorist massacre in Nairiobi, Kenya, the film poses the question: is this luxury commodity really so desirable, considering the ugly reality of terrorism and looming species extinction?
