Bastion of the Giants

«Bastion of the Giants», Sumesh Lekhi, Индия, 2015, док., 60 мин.

‘Bastion of the Giants’, in these challenging times of climate change and species extinction, is a conservation story of the Asian Elephant and India’s north-eastern forests, and how a nation steeped in spirituality that is born out of nature will have to rise up to the task of protecting India’s wild heritage. Amidst man-animal conflict, empathizing with local people and educating  and offering them livelihood opportunities from the conservation process itself and showing them that forests are their investments for the future, will go a long way in conservation. “Bastion of the Giants” presents a unique experience of a picturesque  wetland canvas and the spectacular wildlife in it and how protection of flagship and keystone wildlife species, by forest departments and governments with support of local people and researchers, leads to the conservation of a diaspora of fauna and flora, ultimately leading to the preservation of human life itself
