Film On The Sacred Bond Between Man And Elephant
The story of the bonding of one orphaned baby elephant with his new human companions and the intelligence, and strong communal bonds of his entire species as it searches for sustenance and survival in a shrinking habitat.
The film then broadens its focus to look at the future of all elephants in South India and the human communities that share or border elephant territory. How can these two communities that share so many traits of intelligence, strong social bonds, humour, play, grief, etc. learn to live safely side by side? It will also look at ways tribals have co-existed with elephants for centuries.
This documentary will shift the emphasis from fight and struggle to bond and coexistence.
Sacred Bond is an emotional drama that focuses on the raising of an orphaned baby elephant and the strong bonds he forms with the human community that nurtures and trains him.
My goal is to bring local stories to life that will drive change and have lasting impact on the world which will reach audiences and inspire them to fall in love with these ,majestic beings and to better understand them. Every compelling story we tell can inspire people to take up personal action.
