ABOUT THE PROJECT
Elephant Legacy is one off documentary exploring elephant maintenance in contemporary Thailand. The project seeks to further develop the story of Mr. Somporn Saisathon and his family in northern Chiang Mai whilst taking into account other perspectives on the issue of traditional elephant practice. While Mr. Somporn claims the value of his ancestor’s tradition is almost forgotten nowadays, others criticize his use of chains and hooks to control the animals.
