Synopsis

Numerous scientists around the world dedicate their lives to the study and protection of primates. They have been inspired by Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall or Biruté Galdikas. But why are they mostly women?

This film introduces us to 9 remarkable primatologists, from the jungles of Borneo and Congo to the lush forests of Madagascar.

They explain the sacrifices they’ve made to do their work, the challenges of field research, but also the incredible bonds they have developped with the objects of their studies.
