Revenge Knows Nothing
Spring Grants 2020 - Production Stage
Unfortunately, we live in a world filled with injustice and selfish human actions. ‘Revenge Knows Nothing’ combines two stories in a creative manner showcasing the effects of these actions on its victims—human or otherwise. A helpless child witnesses the horrific actions of war criminals as they destroy his village and kill his beloved family. At the same time, a baby elephant enjoys his last moments before animal poachers attack his mother and kill her for her valuable tusks in front of him. Witnessing these horrific life-changing actions, both the child and baby elephant lose their inner peace and childhood, which is replaced with hate and anger they must carry for the rest of their lives.
