The film, co-produced by Lenexa resident Bhaskar Krishnamurthy, reveals the deadly conflict between coffee growers and elephants in India.
Farmers throughout the world struggle as agriculture competes with animals for land, but in southern India, the struggle has turned deadly. Elephants have killed a number of coffee plantation workers, especially near the Rajiv Gandhi National Park. Elephants in the Coffee won “Best Documentary” at the 2017 Doc Sunback Film Festival, as well as an “Award of Merit” from the 2017 Accolade Global Film Festival. The Calcutta International Cult Film Festival selected the documentary as a “Semi-Finalist.” The film was an “Official Selection” at the 2017 World Conservation Film Festival and other festivals across the nation and around the world, including the Azalea Film Festival in Mobile, AL, Russia\’s Maykop Film Festival, Italy’s Roma Cinema Doc and Toronto’s Canadian Diversity Film Festival.
