Mutwale (moo-TWALL-ay) is an animated short film about an elephant who
is pulled into the chaos of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. Based on true
events, this story follows a young elephant who is banished from his
herd in Rwanda’s Akagera National Park. A local fisherman earns his
trust with sugarcane, but their burgeoning friendship is threatened when
the genocide intrudes into the protected territory.
