Elephant Sanctuary Fundraiser!

Have you ever been to a true elephant sanctuary, and witnessed the grateful relief in the eyes of these majestic animals who have led a life of misery, until they arrived? In Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story, you will experience it as if you are there.

This hope-inspiring movie tells the rescue saga of one elephant, who after 70 years of captivity giving rides to tourists, finally earns her freedom thanks to the world renowned Asian elephant conservationist and TIME Magazine's Hero of Asia, Lek Chailert. Elephant rescues are rare, unpredictable and life threatening. Witness the incredible journey of Lek, actor/director Ashley Bell, and a team of rescuers as they bring Noi Na 500 miles across Thailand to freedom.

At this Silicon Valley premier screening, you will get to meet Ashley Bell in person and view her incredible documentary. After the film plays, you will have the chance to interact with Ashley in a panel discussion.
