TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH:
East Africa

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: East Africa

 

Most of us will never experience first-hand the wonders of East Africa, one of the last wild places on earth. However, through a photographer’s lens, we can enjoy, vicariously, the incredible landscape of East Africa and the amazing creatures that inhabit it. The documentary TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: EAST AFRICA does just that: it takes audiences on a breathtaking virtual tour of East Africa, and showcases the many wondrous animals that live there. The visually stunning program features the photography of award-winning wildlife photographer Todd Gustafson, and is narrated by renowned primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall. Over the course of an hour, viewers discover the life-and-death, day-to-day existence of these creatures, including zebras, giraffes, elephants and more, as they struggle to survive in an environment that is slowly disappearing. The camera lens captures the dramatic moment of a kill; the touching image of a mother lovingly grooming her young; the tense stand-off between two males as they fight over a mate; and the heart-stopping instance as a mother gives birth to a new offspring while wondering if a predator is on the hunt nearby.

Soul of the Elephant

NATURE: Soul of the Elephant

 

Ironically, every dead elephant with its ivory intact is a reason to celebrate. It means an elephant 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. This film, shot over two years, is an intimate look at elephants through the lens of two great storytellers of natural history.
