NATURE

Elsa's Legacy: The Born Free Story

From the producers of Deep Jungle. 2010 marks the 50th Anniversary of Joy Adamson’s milestone book Born Free that was turned into a seminal movie, which won two Academy Awards. The dramatic story of the Adamsons’ rescue of three lion cubs and their attachment to Elsa, whom they released back into the wild, was the first filmic exploration of animals as individuals. Nature will examine the story, revisit the people featured in the film, and discuss the importance and dangers of viewing animals through a human lens as well as the shifting attitudes about conservation.
