By exposing the abhorrent torture suffered by India’s heritage animal – the embodiment(s) of Lord Ganesh, Gods in Shackles offers hope to the thousands of endangered captive and wild elephants in India through heightened awareness that will inspire key stake holders and policy makers to do whatever it takes to enhance the living conditions of these intelligent animals.
We invite you to become part of a legacy by participating in the making of our documentary, and our grander vision to create a rehabilitation center for festival and temple elephants. We believe this film can create waves across India as well as around the world.
Sangita Iyer is super passionate about elephants.She is 3-time international award winner as documentary film maker and as a journalist.She has taken important shots about elephants this summer for her movie called “Gods in Shackles”.
She strives for freeing them from their often life long chains and heavy work and ill treatment. In our show she will ask you to support her in her project to raise awareness in India itself about the gap between considering elephants as GODS – and then treating them with cruelty and afflicting on them much pain.
Sangita is originally from India and now lives in Canada. She has co-founded the Bermuda Environmental Alliance (BEA), a non-profit organization to educate the public on nature and wildlife issues, and to provide practical solutions aligned with earth stewardship.
