To let you understand the research of Dr. Jane Goodall and the life of chimpanzee, we are going to screen the following films in July to October this year. Post-screening talks hosted by conservationists will be arranged after designated screenings. If you are conscious about environmental conservation and are film buffs, don't miss out!
Screening schedule in July to October:
Using a trove of never-before-seen personal footage and a new interview shot by director Brett Morgen (Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck) at her home in Africa, this acclaimed and intimate film tells the extraordinary story of renowned British primatologist Jane Goodall.
Kingdom of the Apes: Brother against Brother (2013)
In a secret kingdom, conflict divides a family. Brother fights brother with politics and scheming for the throne. Freud, the leader, is in his prime - extremely smart and in control. But already, there is dissent within the ranks. His brother Frodo, the biggest chimp in the group, has become his rival. We watch as Frodo and Freud battle it out for the ultimate prize: control of their chimp kingdom.
Jane Goodall: China Diary (2003)
Dr. Jane Goodall is well known for her pioneering research on Chimpanzee behaviour in the wild. Jane long ago realised that to save the Chimpanzees and other endangered species she would have to educate people all over the world about the need to understand, protect and conserve nature. This new mission has taken Dr. Goodall many times around the world, and four times (five times in November 2002) to China. JANE GOODALL: CHINA DIARY documents her trips to China and introduces some of the fascinating people, places and animals of this ancient and dynamic country.
Venue: Lecture Hall, Hong Kong Science Museum
Free admission. Films are narrated in English with Chinese subtitles.
