What does the future of the elephant have to do with the future of childhood? Everything! Combining wildlife footage with the concern and legends of indigenous people in Kenya, the film explores their unique relationships to and with the elephant. Elaborating on the Samburu people's totem and the unique role the elephant plays in their belief system, Lysander's Song emphasizes the essential role of the non-human in the human mind and spiritual ecology. The film considers willdife to be an essential part of our identity.
"Big Life 2012"
Big Life Foundation
The first 6 minute film from Big Life Foundation, shows the urgent poaching situation in East Africa right now, and what Big Life is doing on the ground to deal with it. The film features animal footage shot in Amboseli in July 2012 by Nick Brandt, and interviews and action from earlier in the year with Richard Bonham, as he and the Big Life rangers pursue poachers within the East African Amboseli ecosystem where Big Life currently operates.
