Canadian filmmakers Patricia Sims and Michael Clark have documented the plight of the endangered Asian elephant in Thailand. When Elephants Were Young is the result of their five-year quest to explore new strategies for the future of human-elephant relations and the survival of all elephants.

When Elephants Were Young tells the story of a young man and his elephant who live and street beg in Bangkok. It portrays the conservation issues that threaten the elephant’s survival, until the opportunity comes to release the elephant to the wild. The elephant successfully rehabilitates to the wild, joining a family of wild elephants. The story demonstrates a positive conservation model for the future survival of endangered Asian elephants. The film is narrated by William Shatner.
