Event Description

January 7, 2014 Updated Jan 7, 2014 at 2:34 PM EDT

Join the Cinema Center for a FREE showing of 'An Apology to Elephants' narrated by Lily Tomlin. We will have a question and answer session hosted afterwards. Learn what you can do to help protect these majestic creatures. Show runs approximately 40 minutes.

Elephants are among the Earth's most majestic and intelligent creatures – but for hundreds of years, they have suffered under the hands of humans. We have poached them for their tusks, chained them up in captivity, and destroyed their natural habitats. Narrated and executive produced by Oscar® nominated actress Lily Tomlin and directed and produced by Emmy® winner Amy Schatz, An Apology to Elephants is an HBO family documentary that illustrates how elephants live in the wild – from their matriarchal structure to their truly impressive memories – and examines the problems and issues that arise when they are brought to live in captivity in zoos and circuses and of the cruel ways that circuses break down elephants' spirits in order to get them to perform.
