What would planet Earth be without elephants? This timely insider’s look highlights the importance of wildlife conservation that is now more important than ever.

LOVE & BANANAS is a heartwarming and hopeful story about a team of elephant rescuers, led by world renowned Asian elephant conservationist Lek Chailert, as it embarks on a daring 48-hour mission 500 miles across Thailand to rescue a 70-year old captive blind Asian elephant and bring her to freedom.”You don’t need a bull hook to control an elephant. You can guide an elephant with love… And bananas.” Directed by Ashley Bell, an American actress turned filmmaker, the film tackles the issue of what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants, which are at risk of becoming trophies for man’s macho desire and greed.
