Editorial Reviews

A song of mourning, praise, and compassion for the sentient creatures with which we share this planet. Focusing on the myth, history, and natural life of the elephant, the film explores the gulf we have created between animals and ourselves. Powered by the poetry of Garcia Lorca, Rudyard Kipling, and Daniel Reeves, this impassioned lament for subjugated and slaughtered elephants earns its polemical stance-a broader relation to inhumanity-by force of its compelling subject matter. Reeves adroitly fuses location shoots in India, Kenya, and Thailand with disturbing archival material including Thomas Edison's early motion picture footage of his recurring elephant electrocution. The extraordinary procession of charged images involves and implicates the viewer through its silently scrolling text: the viewer becomes the narrator, assuming the voices of protagonist, poet, and predator. Ganapati/A Spirit in the Bush, a work that situates the killing of elephants within a cultural death drive to destroy the earth, is composed of continuously scrolling script that dislodges the slowed down images of elephants from their animality, linking them into a larger psychic symbolic structure about death, destruction and land. In these works, Reeves fashions a kind of writing through images densely layering imagery and language to create new ways of thinking and perceiving.
