Storyline

The Disenchanted Forest provides fresh insight into the field of primatology by investigating the finding that orangutans are taught how to survive the wild by observing their fellow orangutans, instead of relying on their animal instincts. Unfortunately, deforestation has orphaned many orangutans and severed the very developmental process crucial to their survival. Director Sarita Siegel and her team follow a group of remarkable individuals at the Ngaru Menteng Reintroduction Clinic who teach orphaned orangutans the knowledge and social behavior they need in order to survive in the forest independently.
