The end of the year is a great time to summarize. The outgoing year was very intensive and hard working for the “Yastrebfilm” Production Studio, because of post-production process of the film we have been working at for over three years. Finally, it is time to reap the benefits: the investigation documentary «Ivory. A Сrime Story» starts its festival way next year. This is co-production of Russia, France and Kenya about the causes and consequences of unprecedented demand for ivory. As our French co-producer Chris Bolzli emphasizes: “Sergey Yastrzhembskiy is the only person able to meet the challenge by making investigations all over the world”.
