Elephant Mother

UK, Feature Documentary, 2022, 84 min

Follow Lek Chailert, a tribal Thai woman, as she struggles to rescue abused, once sacred, elephants from the horrifically cruel Thai tourist industry and give them a life free from pain and exploitation. While she is globally renowned within the conservation world, the odds are stacked against her as big business, political corruption, and a ‘mafia’ of traders and traffickers oppose her. But as the world hurtles into a global pandemic, Lek cleverly identifies this time of uncertainty and fear as an opportunity to out-maneuver her enemies and turn the tables. Subtitled.
