FALLBROOK — The Fallbrook Film Factory will host a free screening of the award-winning family film “Ele My Friend” on Wednesday, December 17, at 6 p.m. at Caffé Primo, located at 139 Main Avenue in downtown Fallbrook.
A question-and-answer session by the filmmakers and Factory members will follow the screening. The public is welcome to attend.
“Ele, My Friend” was produced by Factory member Linda Mandrayar and written and directed by her husband, Dharan Mandrayar. It is a heartwarming tale of friendship between a boy and a baby elephant.
Janie Chesney calls it “the perfect family film that will surely be a classic – a must for every family’s library.”
Movieguide’s Ted Baehr said the movie is “beautifully photographed with stunning images. A rare gentle movie that harkens back to the simple innocent Disney family films.”
Syndicated radio talk show host Michael Medved describes the movie as “thoroughly engaging.”
DVD copies of the film will be available for purchase as a fundraiser for the Fallbrook Film Factory following the screening as well as at the following locations throughout the holiday season: Wee Little Sprouts (119 North Main), Fallbrook School of the Arts (310 East Alvarado Street), Fallbrook Christian Book Center (115 Alvarado Street) and Video Nite (5256 South Mission Road, Bonsall).
