The Guardian Elephant Warriors of Reteti at Jelly Film Festival
February 23, 2020Return to Events
The Guardian Elephant Warriors of Reteti tells the story of the inspiring, community led conservation work of northern Kenya’s Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. This oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about the people as it is about elephants. The Guardian Elephant Warriors of Reteti is a powerful story about the changing relationship between people and the animals they are protecting.
It will be screened at the Jelly Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA on Feb. 23, 2020 in Block 3, beginning at 4.20 p.m. at the Secret Rose Theater 11246 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA. Learn more, including how to purchase tickets, here.
