Eye-to-eye introduction by Nashen Moodley, director of the Sydney Film Festival, Australia

This film presents the animals of the Kalahari, the Namibian Desert and the Okovango Delta, with extensive use of music, and by drawing parallels to human behaviour. Of course elephants are featured prominently. We see them experiencing  parenting problems with their offspring, drunken nights, and elephant-sized hangovers after consuming fermented marula fruits… Fifty years after the film was made, some of the comparisons between humans and animals may no longer be entirely up-to-date – but the film remains one of the most enjoyable animal documentaries of all times.
