'Jaipur Mahouti' portrays the cultural love of elephants in India and the strong bond between elephant drivers (mahouts) and the elephants with whom they share their daily lives. It was shot entirely in Jaipur, India and features the music of hip hop artist MC Yogi.
With curiosity as the main impetus, Deborah Harse began exploring the world by bicycle in 1981 and continued to travel
back and forth from her home in NYC to various corners of the world. Over time photography became the focus of her
travels and she developed long term projects that resulted in several exhibitions. In 2005 she shifted from photography
to documentary filmmaking and has won several awards for her films. Her objective is to emphasize how our similarities
outweigh our differences and to portray the dignity in human nature which prevails in societies around the world despite ongoing adversity. “The “Mission Home” is her fifth film.
