Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story is a heartwarming and hopeful film about the plight of Asian elephants and the people who work tirelessly to save them. A team of elephant rescuers led by Lek Chailert, world-renowned Asian elephant conservationist and TIME Magazine's Hero of Asia, embark on a daring mission 500 miles across Thailand to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old captive blind Asian elephant and bring her to freedom. Love & Bananas aims to ignite a new way of thinking about this species and shows what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants.

Discussion led by UGA student Grace Boothby and Athens citizen Nancy Hunter who have both volunteered at Lek Chailert's Elephant Nature Park sanctuary in Thailand.

Sponsored by Speak Out for Species and the UGA Office of Sustainability as part of the Animal Voices Film Festival.
