Summary
"An Apology to Elephants explores the beauty and intelligence of elephants as well as threats to their survival. Focusing on the lives of elephants in captivity, the documentary tells the troubling story of what happens to elephants in the name of entertainment. An Apology to Elephants is an eye-opening film about the exploitation of elephants. It features beautiful footage from nature juxtaposed with disturbing behind-the-scenes video of the training of these wild animals. A call for compassion and better treatment, the film is also a plea to save what's left of the wild in our world."--Container
