A rare elephant rescue in Thailand
This film will forever change how you see elephants. Actor, director and producer Ashley Bell, along with world-renowned conservationist Sangdeaun Lek Chailert bring their new documentary, “Love and Bananas: An Elephant Story,” to “Salon Talks” with Alli Joseph. The pair exposes the often brutal conditions Asian elephants endure, including The Crush Box, in order to become service animals in zoos, circuses and for tourist elephant rides. Chailert and Bell discuss their 500-mile journey rescuing Noi Na, a 70-year-old, partially blind elephant.
