    Oscars 2023: 'The Elephant Whisperers' impresses jury, wins Best Documentary Short Film

    Those plump, bundles of joy that leave destruction and awe in their wake can make even the stoic relent.
    Turns out, the Oscar jury couldn't either.
    The Martha Mitchell Effect' and 'Stranger at the Gate'.
    Running at 41 minutes, this short documentary movie explores the tentative yet precious bond between Raghu, an orphaned baby elephant, and his caretakers - a mahout couple named Bomman and Bellie - who devote their lives to protect him from poachers and raise him.
    A labour of love, ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ took five years to be made.
