Flying Elephants

Elephants – A Mother’s Hope is an award-winning Indian film on Asian Elephants. Although considered sacred, elephants are being decimated across Asia. They are being poached, electrocuted, and their home is lost to the expansion of human settlements, agricultural fields, roads and railways.  The film, inspired by the mythological story in Gajashastra and narrated in the Betta kuruba Tribal language, sheds light on these sensitive, emotional, and socially intelligent creatures that rightfully deserve their place in the natural world.  Join us in celebrating this magnificent creature and share the film.
