FVA Presents "Love And Bananas An Elephant Story"
• What we'll do FVA is bringing to the Tampa Bay area this extraordinary documentary. Embark with us on a daring 48-hour mission, 500 miles across Thailand to rescue a 70-year old captive Asian elephant and bring her to freedom. #LoveAndBananas is a heartwarming and hopeful film that exposes the plight of Asian elephants and the people who work tirelessly to save them. We will also be providing vegan finger foods with desserts and drinks to enjoy prior to film. So please come with an appetite. We will be showing the film at 7:30 pm and it is ninety minutes. Please come and join us for this heartwarming movie. "Right now, Love and Bananas is playing in nearly 50 theaters across the country. It is so completely invigorating to see the love that people have for elephants. We’re hoping that the film will have an impact through building awareness about the horrendous conditions in which elephants are trained for any type of entertainment purpose and screenings like this will certainly help us accomplish our goals." RSVP is appreciated. Bring a guest or two! • What to bring • Important to know
