She Walk With Apes: Special Documentary On The Cards

BBC America is organizing an entire four-day schedule for the celebration of Earth Day’s 50th anniversary. The center of the program is She Walks With Apes, a snapshot into the lives of pioneering women ape scientists and activists Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas.

Directed By Sandra Oh

Every woman has taught our closest animal ancestors more about the environment. The British Goodall lived in Africa with chimpanzees, while the American Fossey was killed while defending mountain gorillas in Rwanda, while the Canadian Galdikas spent time in Borneo with orangutans. The documentary is directed by Sandra Oh of Killing Eve and filmed by the Caitlin and Starowicz teams of the father-daughter.
