Description:

Embedded deeply into a culture-within-a-culture, filmmaker Daniel Mason and his compassionate film crew gained access into a phenomenon unknown to most of the world. The result is a film about life, culture, sustainability economy, travel, the environment, and the very survival of an endangered species: a species that is being exploited by nations seeking financial gain. Filmed entirely in Thailand, this emotional documentary explores the complicated and dangerous business of “Elephant Tourism.” The film also takes a hard look at the working conditions of the Mahouts, the men and women who care for these massive animals 24/7 for little to no pay and who sometimes have to place themselves between tired and overworked elephants and the tourists who pay for entertainment. With stunning cinematography, Mason has assembled experts in the field to create a flowing narrative atop the magnificent visuals.
