If we’ve learnt anything from recent political events, it’s that the modern world is a scary and confusing place; terror threats, nanny states, fake news and eco disasters are just a few of the things to navigate whilst looking good on Instagram. Still, it’s not all bad news, just think of the ratings – probably best to stay inside anyway.

This documentary explores how the Chinese market, deforestation, and tourism all play a role in the imminent extinction of elephants in Laos.
