Narrated by Lily Tomlin, An Apology to Elephants explores the beauty and intelligence of elephants and tells the troubling story of the exploitation of elephants by circuses and zoos. A call for compassion and better treatment, the film is also a plea to save what’s left of the wild in our world.
"[This] eloquent HBO doc is a kind of Pachyderms 101, informed by compassion, outrage and a sense of urgency." - Hollywood Reporter
