ABOUT « SHE WALKS WITH APES » SHE WALKS WITH APES features the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, Jane Goodall, and is narrated by two-time Golden Globe Award winner, Canadian actress, Sandra Oh (Killing Eve). It tells the remarkable story of the “Trimates;” three pioneering women who went into the jungles of Africa and Borneo to live with humanity’s closest cousins, the Great Apes. Filmed in stunning 4K, the documentary is a fresh take on Jane Goodall’s early years living with the chimpanzees, and also reveals rarely seen images of Dian Fossey, the legendary scientist who was murdered while working with the mountain gorillas of Rwanda. SHE WALKS WITH APES also gives due credit to the third pioneering woman, and OFICanada President, Canadian Biruté Galdikas, who went to live among the orangutans of Borneo 50 years ago and is still there today. All three women made history and became pioneers of the global conservation movement today. The film also goes beyond legend and follows a new generation of young women including two Canadians, Julia Badescu and Ruth Linsky (OFICanada Board Member and student of Dr. Galdikas’), and Rwandan Nadia Niyonizeye, who were so inspired by these trailblazers that they decided to follow in their footsteps, and live among the Great Apes.
