Tusk (1980) by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Tusk (French title "Poo Lorn L'Elephant") is a 1980 film directed by cult film-maker Alejandro Jodorowsky and written by Nicholas Niciphor . It is based on the novel Poo Lorn L'Elephant by Reginald Campbell.
In 1980, Alejandro Jodorowsky premiered his children's fable "Tusk", shot in India. Taken from Reginald Campbell's novel "Poo Lorn of the Elephants," the film explores the soul-mate relationship between a young British woman living in India and a highly prized elephant. The film exhibited little of the director's outlandish visual style and was never given wide release. Jodorowsky has since disowned the film.
