Elephant Blues

A Feature film by Philippe Gautier

Produced by 24 Images Production

Production year : 2014

    Synopsis

    Elephant Blues is the true story of Ojas, a 4 year-old girl who lives in a forest in South India amongst elephants. She owes this childhood to her mother, Prajna, an Indian woman who left behind everything in search of her identity close to the roots of her culture, to live in the forest, with elephants, much like a hermit known in Indian mythology, Palakapya: a story that haunts her. To fulfil this choice in life, Prajna had to escape from a rigid Indian society, renounce a PhD degree in London, give up material comfort and even the idea of having a child... but the birth of Ojas upsets her plans.
    Now, Prajna’s sole obsession is to pass on to Ojas the values that guided her in her choices. She knows that the environment in which her daughter grows up will mark her imagination and will forge her identity but her duty as a mother also reminds her that she has to prepare her child to confront human society. So, she devotes every instant of her little girl’s childhood trying by all means to put off the apprehended moment when they both will have to set out to the very world that Prajna had chosen to leave behind.
