Hillary Clinton’s Surprise Appearance at Tribeca is Earth Day Perfect!

The Tribeca Film Festival is going on in New York City this weekend, and Hillary Clinton showed up for a panel discussion of Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Protectors: A Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes” which is being featured at the festival. Bigelow, much acclaimed  for The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, has taken on elephant poaching in this latest opus, a documentary tracking a day in the life of rangers in a wild animal park. Hillary has been passionate and outspoken on the topic of wildlife poaching and trafficking for years.  At Spring Studios, she joined the panel and answered questions, a surprise treat for the audience.  What a perfect ending to Earth Day 2017! 

Hillary Clinton Makes Surprise Appearance During Kathryn Bigelow’s VR Tribeca Panel

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton surprised Tribeca Film Festival goers tonight, making a special appearance during Kathryn Bigelow and Imran Ismail’s The Protectors: A Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes panel. “Thanks for seeing this remarkable film which brings to reality what we’re up against,” Clinton said. “I first became really focused on the horrific slaughter of elephants when I was Secretary of State. It was clear it wasn’t just a terrible crisis, it was the trafficking that was a lot of bad actors. A militia out of Sudan, Boka Harom. It was used to buy weapons and fund the terrorist activities of [many] groups.”

The Protectors: A Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes, from National Geographic Documentary Films, is a VR documentary short that chronicles a day in the life of the rangers in Garamba National Park. With over 30,000 African elephants dying each year at the hands of poachers, and despite the global outcry over the killings, trafficking continues, the film is a call to action to help the conservation NGO African Parks and end the Ivory War.

    Hillary still has so much to offer. This is not directed at regulars here who know this but at social media mysoginists who want her to go away and take Chelsea with her. And Chelsea is Dr. Clinton to you, please.
