Elephant Path (Njaia Njoku)

Series: Portland EcoFilm Festival

Filmmaker Todd McGrain (recipient of the Audubon Award for Art Inspiring Conservation) in attendance for post-film Q & A

An indelible tale of friendship and human commitment to wildlife conservation, set in the rainforest of the Central African Republic, where the last wild herd of forest elephants are safeguarded by American field biologist Andrea Turkalo, Bantu eco-guard Zephirine Mbele, Israeli environmental security contractor Nir Kalron, and a Bayaka tracker Sessely Bernard, who was born on the land where the elephants roam. Elephant Path is the story of how an appreciation for the Dzanga Bai’s elephants crosses cultural, race and geographic differences, creating solidarity among those who value them. Directed by Todd McGrain.
