The Dumb Elephant (2017) is a 2D animated film that explores the journey of discord and reconciliation between a mother and her son, Dave. With no father figure, Dave is at an age where both mother and son find it difficult to relate to each other.
Using a non-linear timeline and meticulously constructed sets, the film hopes to shed light on instances when the lack of communication between parents and kids creates distance and occupies space in their relationship like an elephant in the room.
