On the savanna plains, elephant expert, leading conservationist and world-renowned research zoologist Cynthia Moss explores the close-knit and complex world of the African elephant.
With sensitive photography from the award-winning cameraman Martyn Colbeck, this film follows a wise and experienced matriarch, Echo as she leads her family through Kenya’s Amboseli National Park. In a fascinating insight into the social psychology of the Earth’s largest land mammals.
In the shadow of the towering Kilimanjaro, the elephants engage in intense mating battles and emotional reunions, whilst suffering stillbirths and a variety of health problems. Heartbreaking footage details the struggles of baby Ely as, after being born crippled he tries to stand. The relief is palpable as finally, after much patient nursing by his mother, he recovers enough to walk unaided.
A deeply moving portrayal of these intelligent creatures, stunning cinematography brings to life the high drama, heartbreaking fortitude and touching intimacy of these magnificent beasts.
