ELEPHANT SONG

Two sisters separated during the fall of Saigon find themselves a world apart. Vi An, a refuge, arrives in Canada and teaches herself to play the zither. Through her music, she conjures the life of her sister, raised in the jungles along the Mekong River in South East Asia. Rescued by an elephant, the sister embarks on a harrowing journey in search of a lost calf. Along the way, she saves as many elephants from the perils of modern dangers as she can.

Written and directed by Jennie Esdale, performed by Dean Bareham and Nicola Elson, sounds design by Dave Clarke, featuring original compositions performed live on the zither by Vi An Diep.
