Refugees of the Forest takes the audience deep into the forests of Cameroon where a group of seventy orphan chimpanzees are living in a sanctuary. They all have one thing in common: their mothers were illegally killed for bushmeat. Join filmmaker Dana Vion as she returns 3 times over 4 years for a total of 7 months, documenting the lives of Baati, Milou, Arvid, and friends on their journey of healing and recovery. This film transcends genres and audiences: it is a story of travel, adventure, wildlife, personal challenge and love. We need to know our closest cousins in the wild if we are to save them. In Refugees of the Forest, Dana Vion gives a uniquely intimate, captivating and informed window into their lives.
