LYSANDER'S SONG (USA, 2012, 25 min.)

World Premiere What does the future of the elephant have to do with the future of childhood? Everything. Combining wildlife footage with the concerns and legends of indigenous people in Kenya, the film explores their unique relationships to and with the elephant. Elaborating on the Samburu people’s totem and the unique role the elephant plays in their belief system, Lysander’s Song emphasizes the essential role of the non-human in the human mind and spiritual ecology. The film considers wildlife to be an essential part of our identity. Directed by Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson.

Welcome and short film presentation by Chip Comins, Founder and CEO, American Renewable Energy Day (AREDAY) and Ginna Kelly, Vice President, AREDAY and TV host of “The Green Girl” precedes program. 

Discussion with Lysander's Song filmmakers Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson follows program.
