Friday 10 Dec 2004 - Screening of "Living with Giants"

Category : events

"Living with Giants" will be screened at the Merpati Hall of Geylang East Community Library, on Friday 10th December 2004: 7pm

Geylang East Library is near ALunied MRT. See roadmap.

The film will be introduced by Nirmal Ghosh.

The range of the Asian elephant has shrunk by more than 70%, and India is now host to the largest remaining population.

"Living with Giants" brings you on a journey from Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and north Bengal in Indiaís north east, to the wilderness of Corbett Tiger Reserve and Rajaji National Park in the north, and down to the southern jungles of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.

The film explores the relationship between man and elephants, the enormous challenges faced by both in coexisting in a changing world, and how the Indian Government has responded through its Project Elephant programme.

This film by veteran wildlife cameraman Ashish Chandola was one and a half years in the making and just released. It was supported by Project Elephant (Ministry of Environment and Forests, India) and by the US Department of Interiorís Fish and Wildlife Service (Asian Elephant Conservation Fund).

Nirmal Ghosh who is introducing the film is the Indochina Correspondent for The Straits Times and also a Trustee of The Corbett Foundation, a member of the Steering Committee of Project Elephant chaired by India's Minister of Environment and Forests, and a member of the managing committee of Friends of the Doon. He spends much of his time in the field working on wildlife issues." Link.
