Elephant Awareness Film

Award-winning documentarian Allison Argo is making a film about an elephant who is forced to work for humans.

Allison Argo has successfully raised more than $20,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to create a feature film about an elephant named Dao. According to Argo’s storyline, Dao is stolen from her family in the wild and was forced into working for human service. Spanning 50 years of Dao’s lifetime, the film captures the elephant’s intimate journey through changing environments. The film is based on the real life of Pang Dao, an elephant Argo met while filming in Bangkok. Pang Dao was living under a highway, begging for food on the streets, and still had wounds from years of logging. On her campaign site, Argo writes, “The Story of Dao will open hearts and minds to the plight of some of earth’s most intelligent, sensitive, and endangered creatures.”
