Susi is a female elephant who has been imprisoned in Barcelona zoo since 2002. In February 2008 her matriarch Alicia was killed in front of her and she entered into a serious state of depression. In 2009, the NGO for animal rights Libera! launched a global campaign called FREE SUSI! with the aim of transferring her to a so called animal sanctuary. Despite a massive social support, the campaign was not succesful; but Susi became a symbol for those who fight for changing the regrettable situation of animals living in zoos, towards a more sustainable, educational and ethical model.

"Susi. An elephant in the room" dives us into a transmedia universe inviting the users to be part of this revolutionary worldwide debate by 3 main platforms: an interactive documentary, a series of 4 documentary short films, and an educational app.
