With unprecedented footage, Elephant Path / Njaia Njoku captures the beauty and behavior of the rare and elusive Forest Elephants. Our guides - Sessely Bernard, a tracker and elder of the Bayaka people, and Andrea Turkalo, an American field biologist, join eco-guard Zephirine Mbele in Dzanga Bai, a rainforest clearing in the Central African Republic.
The Seleka, an alliance of rebel militia groups, takes control of the government and region. Andrea flees to the United States, Sessely leads his family into the rainforest, and Zephirine retreats to a nearby village. They must leave the Forest Elephants at risk of being poached during the occupation.
