One hundred years ago, an estimated ten million African elephants roamed the continent. Today there are less than five hundred thousand. Genocides require mass complicity.

    Caught between bloody civil wars and a lust for money, African elephants struggle to survive a seemingly insatiable global demand for ivory.

    Who will fight Al-Shabaab, Janjaweed, Al-Qaeda, The Lord's Resistance Army and the International cartels?

    Meet the outgunned, inexhaustible heroes trying to save them in the feature film, When Giants Fall, due for release in 2016.
