Watch This Documentary To Help Save The Elephants!
In celebration of Earth Day, the documentary film, "Love & Bananas; An Elephant Story" will premiere in select theaters across the U.S.
The film follows Sangdeaun Lek Chailert's, Time Magazine's "Hero of Asia" as she, and director, Ashley Bell, and a team of elephant rescuers embark on a daring mission, 480 miles across Thailand, to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year-old partially blind trekking elephant, and bring her to freedom.
LOVE & BANANAS: AN ELEPHANT STORY aims to ignite a new way of thinking about this species and shows us what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants. The rapidly decreasing numbers of elephants in the world, combined with the popularity of elephant trekking camps and recent announcement to lift a ban on "trophy" elephant imports, makes this a timely and important film as it presents a solution to the problem. Through the heartwarming, yet dangerous journey that Lek and Ashley make to bring one elephant from trekking camp to sanctuary, the film depicts a better way to co-exist with and enjoy elephants that will not put them at risk.
LOVE & BANANAS: AN ELEPHANT STORY had its world premiere at the D.C. Environmental Film Festival on March 16th and will be the opening night film of the KCET Environmental Film Festival in Los Angeles on April 20th. The film will open in New York City on April 27th and in Los Angeles on May 4th. Over 25 additional cities have been announced to follow the NY and LA openings.
