The Heart of the Elephant

Reference View | Change View

There is a mystery behind that masked grey visage, and ancient life force, delicate and mighty, awesome and enchanted, commanding the silence ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks, great fires, and the sea.

Plot Summary

A Documentary of Love, Family and Future As humans continually close off their hearts and empathy - elephants are now just showing us how to truly love and forgive. The heart of the elephant is a story of wonder woven together from a tapestry of eye-witness accounts and scientific proof of these gentle giants' intelligence and undeniable emotional capacity, that is far more powerful than we ever acknowledged. "Lawrence used to say that we all can connect with animals, every single human being," François, the widow of the renowned elephant whisperer said. "If you take the time and have the patience to do so." For François, it's proof that some things in this world just can't be explained by reason. "He was one of them," she said. "Those elephants took Lawrence on a spiritual adventure." It's a story not just about the love and compassion they feel towards the members of their own species, but also their ability to distinguish and trust the humans who prove they are deserving of it.
