Featured Events and Entertainment

Sedona Cinema: ‘When Elephants Were Young’
August 12th – 16th, 2016
Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members
When-Elephants-teaserThe Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present ‘When Elephants Were Young’ at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. William Shatner narrates this story of a young man and his young elephant living together in Thailand. Their tender bond reveals a complex relationship, where elephants live with humans, even though they are wild animals. While the lens never strays from its focus of preserving this magnificent creature from extinction, it also portrays the paradoxes of elephants in captivity, dismantling common beliefs about the relationship between human and elephant. Twenty-six-year-old Wok has been caring for Nong Mai since she was three. Nong Mai is one of 35 captive elephants in Wok’s village in northeastern Thailand. Here, the traditions of elephant keeping have been passed down from generation to generation — but now they’re quickly fading. Wok is Nong Mai’s mahout, her keeper. They are inseparable. They play together. They bathe together. And they beg together. For more information, showtimes or to purchase tickets to this Sedona event please visit the Sedona International Film Festival.
