An Elephant Never Forgets

  • Published 1 year ago

People often say “an elephant never forgets”. It is a testimony to the scientific research that elephants have the best and longest memory among mammals. But this is not a story about elephants and their memory.

This documentary is a story about the living conditions of elephants in Thailand. Joe Keogh, a young comedian from Manchester, UK, tells us the story. He followed the path of hundreds of tourists on the elephant trail in Thailand.

Elephants are an important part of the Thai culture. The country has more than 70 elephant camps, most of which are located in the north part of the country.

Tourists love these camps, and they love the experience of riding an elephant. But how do the working and living conditions for these elephants look? Joe uncovers the difficult truth hiding in the shadow of these fantastic animals.
