Picture Kenya. You’d be forgiven for defaulting to mainstream media imagery of people in poverty - starvation, flies, and sprawling slums. Or perhaps you picture an open savannah at sunset, the red glow silhouetting a herd of elephants as they move slowly across the horizon.
From ArgoFilm's "The Urban Elephant" comes the touching story of Shirley and her keeper, Solomon James. Trapped in a man-made world, Shirley's life at the Louisiana Purchase Zoo was a lonely one, bereft of the company of other elephants. Follow Shirley and Solomon through a life of captivity to release in the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary. This two-time Emmy Award winning film was produced for PBS's Nature Series.
