All Living Things – Manoj Gautam and Jane Goodall in Nepal by Gabriel Diamond In 2010, I spent eleven days in Nepal documenting the work of a young environmental and animal rights activist named Manoj Gautam. Manoj has protected elephants, snakes, vultures and endangered species while advocating for humane treatment of circus and zoo animals. Out of the footage from this trip, I made an award winning short film called “We Are In the Field”. But this project was not finished. Two years later, I found out that Jane Goodall was going to Nepal to visit Manoj. I wanted to witness the act of one inspiring leader reaching out and supporting another. They spoke a lot about the Gadhimai festival. When Manoj first witnessed the slaughter of innocent animals at Gadhimai, he felt all his work was for nothing. Eventually, he found his resolve, vowing he would do everything in his power to keep it from happening again. That brings us to now. I’ve seen the way Manoj approaches people and inspires them to treat animals with kindness. That’s where you come in.
