Fortnight of Film: Mahout – The Great Elephant Walk

Join us for our first ever Asia House Fortnight of Film in August for the screening of two critically acclaimed documentaries set in Asia.

Kicking off the fortnight on Thursday 13 August will be Mahout – The Great Elephant Walk (88mins), winner of the Best Film Award at the 2014 London Independent Film Festival. Mahout follows the story of ex-London city worker, now eco-lodge owner Tim Edwards, who needs to relocate four elephants and their mahouts (a person who works with, rides and tends an elephant) between two national parks in southern Nepal. However, walking some of the largest land animals in existence across one of the most densely populated regions on Earth is no simple task, as this epic tale reveals.

A Q&A with Mahout’s filmmakers, James Dartnall and Jack Wylson, will follow the film.

Two delicious flavours of Ten Acre popcorn, namely Ambrose Popperley’s Wasabi and Aunty Winifred’s Sweet & Salty, will be served free of charge.
