Solomon James is the perfect example of an Ambassador of Love & Healing. He gives his heart energy and compassion to a lonely animal in captivity. It was his job, sure, but not everyone would have brought such love to help this magnificent elephant everyday.

From ArgoFilm’s “The Urban Elephant” comes the touching story of Shirley and her keeper, Solomon James. Trapped in a man-made world, Shirley’s life at the Louisiana Purchase Zoo was a lonely one, bereft of the company of other elephants. Follow Shirley and Solomon through a life of captivity to release in the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary. This two-time Emmy Award winning film was produced for PBS’s Nature Series.
