Elephants in Frames
This film is only available in the United States because of territorial licensing.
The intriguing world of the Asian working elephant.
Unnaturally bent legs slip on a steep hillside as thick chains draw blood under the dragging weight of vast logs. Asian elephants have worked for mankind for over 4,000 years. Generations of labor, performing, separation, and brutal taming methods have had a profound impact on these emotionally intelligent creatures. Through stunningly intimate cinematography, this film poetically examines their complex relationship with the human race.
