Rue des Elephants

Filmed in the Central African rainforest against the backdrop of a violent civil conflict, Rue des Elephants captures two critical years in the lives of one of the last wild herds of Forest Elephants. When 26 elephants are killed by rebels determined to turn ivory into the weapons of war, Bayaka tracker Sessely Bernard, American biologist Andrea Turkalo, and Israeli security contactor Nir Kalron face dramatically different futures bound by the realities of affluence, nationality, poverty and race.
