Reel Causes is delighted to be a Community Partner with Women in Film & Television Vancouver, presenting When Giants Fall on March 13th at 3:00 pm at the Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour St., Vancouver.

When Giants Fall depicts the heartbreaking plight of African elephants, and the heroines and heroes who are striving to preserve them.

Elephants are singularly intelligent, stunningly beautiful, wondrously communal creatures. Who is there who does not marvel at their majesty and their grace?

The magnificent herds of Africa are rapidly disappearing. 65% of the continent’s population have been killed during the past five years. It is said that one elephant is shot every fifteen minutes.

Why? Because ruthless poachers and several of the world’s most vicious criminal syndicates and international terrorist organizations slaughter them to harvest their tusks. A virulent commerce that can succeed only because of human beings’ unconscionable lust for ivory.

Who confronts these wonderful animals’ tormentors? A small band of dedicated protectors, impossibly overmatched.

Please join us to view this important film and learn about the tragedy that is unfolding among the herds in Africa.
