What does the future of wildlife have to do with the future of childhood? Everything!

Walking Thunder: Ode to the African Elephant tells the story of African elephants through a family’s perspective and a child’s eyes. Filmmakers Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson travel with their young son, Lysander, across East and Southern Africa, filming over the course of 10 years as they observe the role of the elephant and its own rapidly changing reality. The documentary shares the perspective of indigenous Africans, revealing the rich and complex relationship they have with the magnificent animals who are integral to their lives.

“The film ‘Walking Thunder’ is an outstanding achievement. The time and talent dedicated over a 10 year span has resulted in a mesmerizing portrait of the wild Africa that still remains, despite increasing pressure from both the wildlife trafficking trade and the ever-growing human population. We must do all that is in our power to ensure that these incredible animals can remain in their habitat whilst ensuring that the human animals with whom they share the continent can also survive in dignity.”
