You’re invited to a special free screening of the riveting new documentary Where the Elephant Sleeps in New Delhi. The film will be shown on 17 November at 6:30 pm at the India International Centre and on 18 November at 7 pm at the India Habitat Centre.
The powerful 99-minute film, which is directed by Brigitte Uttar Kornetzky, is about elephants who are forced to give tourists rides at Amer Fort in Jaipur. These elephants typically suffer from physical and mental distress. With captivating cinematography and an engaging story line, this film shows how India’s most beloved animal is abused in an illegal, but publicly accepted, fashion.
Ms. Kornetsky’s Elefanten In Not (“Elephants in Need”) foundation worked with Help in Suffering–Jaipur and the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre to better understand the sentiments in Rajasthan and facilitate the filming of the movie.
The film has been cleared by the Animal Welfare Board of India and the Central Board of Film Certification. It’s been shown in Switzerland and other European countries and received rave reviews. We hope you will be able to attend a free screening.
