Anamalai: India's Elephant Mountain | 2000
Rising from the dusty plains of Southern India is a mountain range called Anamalai, which means "The Elephant Mountain." Through lush tropical forests and bamboo stands, elephant herds roam free. Considered to be the living incarnation of the Hindu god Ganesh, the Asian elephant is revered as the lord of protection, and all animals, from the tiger to the tree frog, fall within its benevolent authority. The program begins with the birth of a baby elephant, following it through its first year of life under the watchful eye of its mother and its large extended family.
