Review of PIFF's "Watching the Rhino"

 We're heading into the final phase of the Portland International Film Festival, which closes this coming Saturday, the 21st. Two of tonight's films are a fair representative of the scope of PIFF. First is Milking the Rhino (6:30 at the Broadway 3), David E Simpson's documentary about how Africans in Kenya are dealing with dangerous wild animals. Also on hand is Sugar, a drama by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (who will be in attendance tonight), who also did the respected Half Nelson, which was nominated for an Academy Award. Sugar (6 PM at the Whitsell), which I haven't seen, is about the immigrant experience, in the form of a talented baseball player. This film might be of special interest to viewers who have heard the news story about the two javelin throwers from India who won a baseball throwing TV contest and ended up in America on the Pittsburg Pirates farm team, knowing nothing, absolutely nothing, about the game of baseball.
