The Last Migration

The film portrays a 42-day elephant capture operation in Madhya Pradesh, India. It explores the sensitive issue of animal-human conflict, with special reference to the elephant. These pachyderms were driven out of their original homes in Bihar, owing to large-scale deforestation.

They were forced to migrate 300 km. to eastern Madhya Pradesh, where they only encountered sterile teak plantations. Pressures of sustenance drove them on a rampage and several people were killed and fields destroyed in the tribal district of Sarguja. The elephants were finally captured for translocation in 1993.
