      International Wildlife Film Series:
      This Friday � "Andes to Amazon"
      Next Friday � "Echo of the Elephants"

      by Kate Marianchild

      Ukiah�s first International Wildlife Film series played to a full house
      last Friday, the second in a series of six evenings. At the end of the
      evening Tom deMarchi of Willits said he wished every every child in
      town could have been there, and said he himself could happily see the
      film 10 more times. This week's photographic masterpiece, to be shown
      on Friday, March 16, is "Andes to Amazon" which won Best Photography,
      Best of Category, and Best Editing (2nd place) at Montana's
      International Wildlife Film Festival. Music will be provided by Daniel
      Frey. To be assured of a seat please buy your tickets early from
      Mendocino Book Company in Ukiah or Leaves of Grass Bookstore in
      Willits. The cost is a suggested $10 donation per evening. These
      evenings of film and socializing are a benefit for the
      community-supported Redwood Valley Outdoor Education Project (a project
      of Ukiah Unified School District). The series continues on Friday
      evenings through April 6, with each evening beginning at 7 p.m. at
      Ukiah Civic Center, 300 Seminary Avenue. To learn more about the films
      please go to www.rvoep.com.

      Next week's film, "Echo of the Elephants - The Final Chapter," is the
      true story of Echo, a wise and gentle elephant who has led her family
      through good times and bad for over 30 years. Against the snow-capped
      peaks of Amboseli National Park in southern Kenya we see Echo form a
      phalanx to rescue her baby when it was kidnapped by another group of
      elephants. We also observe increasing tensions with the Masai people,
      with whom the elephants compete for food and water. We are held in
      suspense as Echo attempts to guide her family through the challenges of
      a changing world. Based on a 30-year study by Cynthia Moss, and
      narrated by David Attenborough, this film won Best TV Program (Budget
      $250-500,000) - 1st Place; Best Use of Music; and Best Editing. Music
      for the evening will be provided by Nick Johnson and company on drums
      and didgeridoo.
