Into the Okavango directed by Neil Gelinas for National Geographic (88 min.) / The Elephant's Song directed by Lynn Tomlinson (8 min.)
A passionate conservation biologist brings together a river bushman fearful of losing his past and a young scientist uncertain of her future on an epic, four-month expedition across three countries, through unexplored and dangerous landscapes to save the Okavango Delta, one of our planet's last pristine wildernesses.
The Elephant's Song
The true and tragic tale of Old Bet, the first circus elephant in America, rendered in painterly clay-on-glass and oil pastel animation, and narrated in song by her friend, an old farm dog.
