A herd of elephants grazes in the abundant grasslands of western Zimbabwe sometime in the early 1980s.

Almost silently, the massive animals pluck leaves and branches from trees, occasionally pausing near small ponds to drink and splash in the mud.

It takes no more than 20 seconds to slaughter them all.

The elephants have been targeted in a culling operation — scheduled killings overseen and funded by the Zimbabwean government.

Acting is in Ashley Bell’s DNA. Her grandparents were vaudeville performers, and both of her parents are working actors. Bell’s parents weren’t thrilled when she informed them that she, too, intended to become an actor, but after seeing her commitment to the craft, they offered their full support, a gift for which she is eternally grateful. After studying acting at New York University, Bell went on to appear in a number of films.
