White Hunter Black Heart is a 1990 American adventure drama film produced, directed by, and starring Clint Eastwood and based on the 1953 book of the same name by Peter Viertel. In the early 1950s, world-renowned film-maker John Wilson travels to Africa for his next film, bringing with him a young writer chum named Pete Verrill. Part of his travel plans include hunting elephants and other game, which he prioritizes ahead of making the film. This leads to a conflict between the men on several levels, most notably over the idea of killing such a grand animal for sport. Wilson concedes that it is so wrong that it is not just a crime against nature, but a “sin” and that is the reason he wants to do it.

He cannot overcome his desire to bring down a giant bull, a “tusker” with massive ivory tusks. Wilson’s final realization that his is a petty, ignoble pursuit comes at a late point and with a tragic price, as the local animal tracker Kivu is killed protecting him from an elephant Wilson decides not to shoot.
