The Elephant Queen

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A majestic female elephant leads her herd in search of a new place to call home, in this empowering and breathtaking documentary from veteran wildlife filmmakers Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble.
The human world is, even to this day, remiss in its acceptance of female leadership but the animal kingdom has forged ahead. Enter Athena, a charismatic giant tusker with an unmistakable attitude. Earning the respect of her extended family by ruling with loving practicality, Athena knows that the fate of her herd is on her shoulders — a responsibility she does not take lightly. The challenges faced by one newborn, Mimi, remind us how fragile life can be in an unforgiving climate, and just how much herd members rely on one another.
