“Kief is a great fit for Park Pictures because of his talent for marrying creative filmmaking with meaningful stories. He impressed us with his many accomplishments in the documentary film world. We believe his upcoming feature film, Ivory, will be transformative, not only to the craft of documentary filmmaking but also to the world of wildlife conservation, in particular the wide spread slaughter of African elephants,” says Park Pictures’ Co-owner and Executive Producer Jackie Kelman Bisbee.
Ivory (working title), follows undercover intelligence operatives in Africa, Asia and Europe who are taking down the elephant ivory cartels, as activists and rangers fight for the species' survival. The documentary was produced by Red Bull's Terra Mater Studios and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's Vulcan Productions. The powerful cinema documentary is slated for theatrical release this fall.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Davidson is also known for his award-winning films The Devil’s Miner and Kassim the Dream.
