Indonesia/USA, 2020, 7 min., English

This clever short doc tells the story of a young Indonesian elephant named Salma. She had fallen into a hole and was near death when a local conservation group led by a Goldman-prize winning activist banded together with some other noble folks to rescue the gentle giant. The film is both gripping and strangely fun to watch as Salma finds her way back to health.

DIR:James Robinson
EDITOR: James Robinson

James RobinsonJames Robinson is currently a senior at Duke, where he is majoring in Environmental Science and Documentary Studies. His environmental films range from documenting sooty terns in the Dry Tortugas to land loss in Louisiana. He enjoys all stages of his filmmaking and has learned to embrace the process—the shoot, the edit, the headaches, the challenges, the closeness, the silence, and the shared vulnerability that meets at the camera’s lens.


USA, 2015, 90 min., English
In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it. From the Academy Award® Winning Filmmakers of “The Cove”.
