Arnolfini - est 1961

Rise Of The Warrior Apes tells the twenty year story of the largest and most powerful chimpanzee society ever known.

Through the extraordinary lives of four unique chimps we experience an intense political drama and bloody conflict in the African jungle. Using previously unseen footage, and witness testimony from the scientists who have observed and filmed them since 1993, we reveal a story of unbreakable friendship, fierce rivalry and unparalleled ambition that gave rise to the warrior apes of Ngogo.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director James Reed and contributor John Mitani.
