NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS

Synopsis

Naledi tells the incredible story of a baby elephant who was born into a rescue camp in the wilderness of Botswana. When she is suddenly orphaned at one-month-old, it is up to the keepers who look after the herd to keep her alive.

This one elephant’s tale remains both intimate and epic, a journey of tragedy and triumph because when her entire species faces extinction, one life means everything.

Critic Reviews

“The film reveals moments nearly unparalleled in wildlife filmmaking, demonstrating interactions like the first steps of Naledi after being born, being nudged by her several ton mother into successful strides. The story, which filmmakers could not have foreseen beyond capturing the life of a newborn African elephant, becomes one of great significance as Naledi’s mother, Kiti, passes away when the young elephant is only six weeks old. From this point on, the film is a testament to the will and love of Naledi’s caretakers, and the “star”’s own courage to continue to shine.” – Ashley Sullivan, JaneGoodall.com.
