NYICFF 2012: Chimpanzee
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space
USA - SPECIAL SNEAK PREVIEW
Nature Film, Alastair Fothergill/Mark Linfield, 2012
NYICFF is thrilled to present the first New York screening of the new Disneynature film from the award-winning directors of Earth. Sumptuously shot in the rain forests of Africa, Chimpanzee tells the true-life story of an adorable young chimp named Oscar. Oscar's playful curiosity and zest for discovery showcase the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom. The world is a playground for little Oscar and his fellow young chimps, who'd rather make mayhem than join their parents for an afternoon nap. Working together, Oscar's chimpanzee family - including his mom, Isha, and the group's savvy leader, Freddy - navigates the complex territory of the forest. But when Oscar's family is confronted by a rival community of chimps, he is left to fend for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever. As with the groundbreaking earlier Disneynature films, Chimpanzee boasts unparalleled nature photography and gives us an intimate first-hand look into the life of our closest relatives, while telling a truly remarkable story of family bonds and individual triumph.
