Summary, etc.:
An important film, beautifully made, which plunges us deep into the previously hidden country of Myanmar, its culture and its forests, and intimately close to the elephants and their Oozies, the men who share their lives and work. Following an international team of scientists whose findings are crucial to saving these elephants from extinction, we learn how it may be possible to save not just these but the whole species of Asian elephants. In the process we learn how Myanmar's use of elephants for tree-by-tree logging also preserves one of the largest remaining forest habitations on earth. The softly-spoken voice-over narration and subtly supporting score add to the sense of a privileged insight into the secrets of Myanmar and its elephants.
