    Amidst the challenging times of the global coronavirus pandemic, the need for media that inspires, connects and transports us to vibrant new worlds is greater than ever. In this spirit, Kindred Planet Productions is thrilled to invite you to an exclusive pre-release digital screening of the feature documentary film, Elephant Keeper, followed by a live Q&A with Director Kate Kirby.

    Elephant Keeper goes behind-the-scenes at an elephant conservation center in Laos, providing a rare and intimate glimpse into the daily life of an elder Mahout and his 60-year-old elephant confidant. The film is an immersive portrait of a unique interspecies relationship, documenting one man’s effort to preserve a centuries-old tradition and a species on the brink of extinction.
