YOUTH PROGRAM AT THE ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL
NALEDI: A BABY ELEPHANT’S TALE
Presented by: Environmental Film Festival
(USA, 2016, 90 min.) Naledi: A Baby’s Elephant’s Tale documents the incredible, true-life story of a baby elephant born into a rescue camp in the wilderness of Botswana. As the elephant is suddenly orphaned at one month, it is up to the men who look after her herd to save her life, leading to the further fight to protect the elephant species from falling prey to poachers across Africa. This epic portrait of Naledi comes to mirror the fight for the survival of elephants, revealing a journey of tragedy and triumph that allows viewers to discover the extraordinary inner life of an animal as complex as any person, and as iconic as Africa itself. Panel discussion and Q&A with filmmakers to follow film. Pre-screening educational materials with activities are available and recommended to all students attending the screening.
