“A rich tapestry of emotion and drama, 20 years of love and rivalry within a tribe of chimpanzees in the forests of Tanzania, based on the research of naturalist Jane Goodall and captured by wildlife photographer Hugo van Lawick”

This lavishly filmed documentary is an amazing record of three generations of a chimpanzee family, filmed by legendary filmmaker Hugo van Lawick over a twenty year period, working alongside researcher Jane Goodall.

Jane Goodall spent much of her life documenting and protecting the endangered chimpanzees of Gombe in Tanzania. Her husband Hugo filmed her achievements and progress, resulting in the most complete and perceptive film study ever of chimpanzees living in their wild and natural habitat around Lake Tanganyika.

People of the Forest, which has won many awards, including two Emmys®, depicts the struggles between differing troops of chimpanzees, the predators they face and the forces of nature that impact their very own survival.

The story follows its main characters Flo, the clan matriarch, and Fifi, a young female who ascends from girlhood to become the clan matriarch.

This ground-breaking documentary will leave you with a strong sense of empathy for chimps and a greater respect for these remarkable animals.

PLEASE NOTE: this DVD only has Dutch narration; there is no English narration and no English subtitling available.
The original audio of the bonus film (‘Return to the Forest’) is in English, but it has an added narration in Dutch, which can not be turned off. 

This is an imported DVD and the description on the box/packaging is not in English.
People of the Forest was produced before modern, high-definition equipment was used – the video quality is comparable to that of VHS video, not today’s hi-def DVD quality.

We also stock this DVD in a version with English audio - please see the 2-disc set.
