Animal activists

My kids are fans of Emily Deschanel. She and Jorja Fox are working with animal activist directors Synthian Sharp and Tim Gorski in How I Became an Elephant - the elephant documentary is due to be released on April 23rd. For anyone interested in animal rights and stopping the abuse of elephants, I really recommend seeing this one.

Elephant Documentary

I've been reading about the abuse of elephants in Asian tourism, and am pretty shocked about what happens to these poor elephants. Synthian Sharp and Tim Gorski directed an elephant documentary with 14-year-old Juliette West. You can read more about it at the elephant documentary synopsis for How I Became an Elephant.
