Set to the music of hip hop artist MC Yogi, Ganesh is Fresh is a four minute music video portraying 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.

After many years as a still photographer and several exhibitions of long term projects, Deborah Harse began shooting video in 2005. One year later she filmed, produced and directed her first film, Marathon Beirut, for the Love of Lebanon. This feature length documentary screened in over twenty festivals between 2009 and 2010, won awards and ultimately found distribution. Ganesh is Fresh is her second film and first foray into music videos.
