Special Screening: Elephant Path/Njaia Njoku

Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 4:00pm

Cinemapolis , Auditorium 120 East Green Street, Ithaca

Efforts to understand and protect endangered African forest elephants follow a straight line path right back to Cornell. A special screening of the new documentary, Elephant Path/Njaia Njoku explains the connection. (Njaia njoku means "elephant path" in the Bayaka language.) The film highlights the work of American field biologist Andrea Turkalo, the Bayaka people of the Central African Republic, and the Elephant Listening Project (ELP) based at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

After the Elephant Path/Njaia Njoku screening, there will be a panel discussion moderated by former NPR Radio Expeditions producer Bill McQuay. The panel will include filmmaker Todd McGrain, Andrea Turkalo, Elephant Listening Project founder Katy Payne, and ELP’s current director, Peter Wrege. A post-screening reception is being held at Bar Argos at 408 State Street. Tickets for the evening are $15 and can be purchased online or in person at Cinemapolis, 120 East Green Street in Ithaca.
