THE LAST ELEPHANT MEN (86 '), French Première
Delighted tourists, perched on the back of an elephant, cameras hanging from their neck and exoticism of a foreign country in their eyes! But who are the men who lead these tourists? What is their relationship to these majestic elephants that provide their livelihood? The Bunong, a people established not far from the border between Cambodia and Vietnam, have captured and tamed wild elephants for thousands of years. An ancestral culture today threatened as much by the pressure of companies wanting to exploit the natural resources of the forests and rivers as by the difficulty of transmitting their traditions to the next generation.
