Soul of the Elephant is an intimate look at the lives and deaths of some of the world’s most remarkable creatures. Ironically, every elephant that dies with its ivory intact is a reason to celebrate. It means it died of natural causes, not bullets, snares or poison, and a soul was allowed to be celebrated and mourned by its herd. Award-winning filmmakers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert start with the remains of two bull elephants and, through a series of key flashbacks, look at the lives they would have led, the dramas they may have seen, their great migrations for water with their families, and their encounters with lions and hyenas.
