The Last of the Elephant Men provides a profound inside look at the heart of a culture strongly adapted to the elephant

SIFF, the Seattle International Film Festival is a favourite of the festival circuit because of its broad line up.

Must see for 2015: Handmade With Love In France, it perfectly captures the artisans who create the specialized pieces of haute couture – the pleats (I guarantee you will never look at pleats the same way again), the shoes, the hats – it’s a marvel and you will thrill to the craftsmanship and integrity of the artisans still plying their trades.

Director Julie George Bernard creates a very loving vibrant film.

Catch: As if footage of beautiful and brilliant elephants set in the exotic backdrop of Cambodia weren’t enough, The Last of the Elephant Men provides a profound inside look at the heart of a culture strongly adapted to the elephant. Playing at The Vic Theatre.

Reminder: Cinecenta is closed for renos from July 19 to Aug 3, then it will be more great films on the horizon.
