Mutwale | An animated kickstarter project!

We never said our friends were ONLY gorgeous and glamorous... Some of our friends are that AND conscious of social issues as well as insanely talented. Jeff Martell is an animator and filmmaker who launched a kickstarter to fund his deeply moving project. He's so close to the finish line it would be a shame not to try and help him get all the way there. Watch the video above to get the full story and click the link below to visit the kickstarter page.

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.
