About this Event

The Hive Sai Kung x Earth.Org film screenings are back, bringing environmental films of the highest calibre to you across all our locations around the Asia Pacific Region. 🌿

This time we will screen Love & Bananas - An Elephant Story. Witness this gut-wrenching yet optimistic film about an elephant rescue in Thailand. 🎬

Ashley Bell and a team of elephant rescuers led by world renowned Asian elephant conservationist Lek Chailert, embark on a daring 48-hour mission across Thailand to rescue a 70-year old captive blind Asian elephant and bring her to freedom.

African elephants are slaughtered for their ivory, but sadly the plight of the Asian Elephant has been completely overlooked even though they are the elephant we are most familiar with in zoos, circuses and elephant rides. Love & Bananas aims to ignite a new way of thinking about this species and shows what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants. 🐘

With this screening we aim to help create awareness of the urgent plight of (Asian) elephants, and to share knowledge and positive solutions for the better care and management of captive and wild elephants. 🌿

Members: Free of charge

Non-members: 50HKD

Note: All proceeds of the ticket sales and donations will go to the Elephant Nature Park - an elephant rescue & rehabilitation center. Every donation can help to conserve and protect elephants from the numerous threats they face.
