In partnership with the Multnomah County library system, Northwest VEG brings you a film series that could change the way you see the world. We continue with How I Became an Elephant.
Join us at the Multnomah County Central Library located at 810 SW 10th Ave, Portland. Doors open at 1:30pm.
When Juliette West set out on a quest to educate herself she got far more than she bargained for. How I Became an Elephant follows this wide-eyed fourteen year-old from suburban California on her quest to save the world’s largest land mammals; a quest that takes her halfway across the globe and face to face with the gentle giants she aims to save. Little does this fourteen year-old know she is about to embark on a journey that will change her life forever.
Part investigative journalism and all adventure, this elephant documentary is inspiring folks around the globe to get involved. How I Became An Elephant is far more than just a film. It’s one girl’s story… that led to a movement, which led to a continuing plan… to save a species.
After the film, join us for a discussion of how you can help elephants in Portland with Courtney Scott of Beyond Productions and Dani Dennenburg of HEART (Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers).
