Learn more Elsa the lion, made famous in the book and movie Born Free, as well as George and Joy Adamson. Born Free changed the way that we think about wildlife, but there is even more to the story. Behind the film and book lies the real story of the Adamsons’ life with Elsa. Their diaries, home movies, and detailed records reveal an intimate look into their pioneering work and unique relationship with lions. Recollections of the actress who portrayed Joy in the film, and memories of people who knew and worked with the Adamsons leave us with a new appreciation for the world of animals we never knew.
Join us in the Gallery at noon on Wednesday for this hour-long film. We will have coffee and refreshments; feel free to bring a sack lunch to enjoy while watching!
