Mahout. The Great Elephant Walk

Mahout The Great Elephant Walk, announced at the LIFF (London Independent Film Festival) Awards as the Best UK Film for its feature documentary. The film follows a team of elephant drivers as they walk a group of elephants across Nepal. Directors and Producers James Dartnall of Pink Banana Productions and Jack Wylson endured 5 weeks of monsoon conditions and sleeping rough to produce the documentary, which shows the remarkable bond between the Mahout – the keeper and the elephant. Not only was it one of the most challenging projects James has worked on, the expedition has also allowed the team to raise awareness of The Nepal Elephant TB Control and Management Plan, which is trying to eradicate Tuberculosis in wild and domesticated elephants in Asia.
