Outstanding African wildlife photography and a bravura performance by thirteen year-old Sabu combine to create a hauntingly beautiful film, from Oscar-nominated director Robert J. Flaherty.

Little Toomai longs to be a great hunter like his father, who he accompanies on a government expedition to hunt for wild elephants. The other hunters teasingly tell him that he must first see the legendary Elephant's Dance. Then tragedy strikes - Toomai's father is killed by a tiger and Kala Nag, his elephant, runs amok and throws his new driver. With demands that the animal be killed, in accordance with tradition, Toomai flees with the elephant deep into the jungle.

Based on Rudyard Kipling's 'Toomai of the Elephants' this film launched the career of Sabu, who had previously been a stable boy to a maharajah and was cast as the lead by director Robert Flaherty when filming on location in India. Flaherty returned to the UK with the location footage, which was then finished by Zoltan Korda. The end product is an exotic and memorable adventure that won the Best Director award at the Venice Film Festival and features lush cinematography by the Oscar-nominated Osmond Borradaile.
