Gods in Shackles

Gods in Shackles 91m Canada Dir Sangita Iyer Gods in Shackles is a feature-length documentary film, an exposé revealing the dark side of the southern Indian state of Kerala's glamorous cultural festivals that exploit temple elephants for profit under the guise of culture and religion. We call this film Gods in Shackles, as it features the embodiment(s) of Lord Ganesha - a Hindu God with an elephant face – the endangered Asian elephants that are being tortured in religious rituals and cultural festivals. This film challenges cultural and religious practices that condone torture of elephants that have been created by the same God they worship.
