About this item
Do elephants think like humans? Do they talk like humans? Do they laugh and cry and feel like humans? In this emotionally charged and magnificently beautiful documentary, acclaimed Canadian novelist Barbara Gowdy tries to find the answers to these questions. What she discovers is the story of "Elephant Dreams". Gowdy has been touted as a literary daredevil, and it was her novel "The White Bone" that led to this quest. Gowdy observed first-hand that elephants had experienced deep emotional attachments, heartbreak and terrifying adventures, and had the provocative idea that elephants are conscious of their awareness. "Elephant Dreams" follows the author to Kenya and dramatizes segments of her absorbing book which, cover to cover, is based on solid scientific research. "Elephant Dreams" is true to the spirit of Gowdy's work - it's funny, irreverent, and ultimately illuminating in its attempt to get within the skin of an alien creature.
