“Elias Is A Panther” is a documentary about a boy, Timian, and his chronically ill brother, Elias. When Elias dies, Timian must tackle the pain of loss and his family’s grief. Timian will not talk about Elias’s illness and eventual death. He would rather be a tiger and play forever with Elias, a panther, in the jungle of his imagination.
