The San Francisco Chronicle covered The Eyes of Thailand Work-in-Progress Clip premiere on October 21, 2009.  Here is an excerpt:

Having shot movies on four continents, San Francisco filmmaker Windy Borman had seen it all – until she came across the world’s first elephant hospital in Thailand two years ago, where the enormous patients were being treated for everything from eye infections to gunshot wounds. In July, when she heard that some elephants at the hospital, victims of exploding land mines, were getting new legs, Borman raised some quick cash, jumped on a plane and finished shooting “The Eyes of Thailand,” a documentary about the hospital, to be released next year. We caught a clip of the film last week at a post-production fundraiser in North Beach. Trust us: You haven’t seen anything until you’ve watched an Asian elephant in the forest take its first steps on a prosthetic leg. Jaws hit the floor.

Thank you to everyone who came to the post-production fundraiser for The Eyes of Thailand on Oct 21, 2009! The documentary is timely, poignant, heartfelt and needs to be distributed in 2010 to tell the world about the plight of endangered Asian Elephants.
