Naledi: A Baby Elephant’s Tale2016. USA. 90 min.
Director: Ben Bowie, Geoff Luck
In the serene grasslands of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, a baby elephant is born at a rescue camp. When she’s suddenly orphaned at one month, the keepers and scientist looking after the herd become tireless surrogate mothers. Camp scientist Mike Chase has launched the most ambitious census ever of African elephants across the continent, a last-ditch effort to help them survive. This documentary details the story of Chase’s race to defend an entire species while simultaneously struggling to save a single life. Discussion with director Geoff Luck
