I have to say that walking the red carpet will never get old and become routine for me. Seeing people that I’ve heard about and admired for years like Jane Goodall will always be humbling and I hope that sharing these photos with you will make you feel like you were there with me.
“Yes. Everybody who goes to see this film in its first week, the Jane Goodall Institute gets a percentage to the ticket sales, and all of that money is going to actually help us look after our little Oscars. We put a sanctuary with over 150 orphan chimps whose mothers were killed in the bush meat trade. And it’s very expensive, looking after them, and right now we’re struggling to get the funds to prepare the big island in the middle of the river.
Which will make a safe place for the adults, for some of our orphans and our full-grown. And they’re very smart. They learn how to escape, and that’s dangerous for them, and it’s very dangerous for our staff. So it’s a bit desperate. We need to raise this money.”
The Directors Alastair Fothergill & Mark Linfiled and Jane Goodall:
“the scientists have been working with those chimpanzees for 30 years and never ever seen that to happen. And so for that to happen was fantastic for Oscar, but, my goodness, you know, if we’d written the script exactly as we’d wanted, we wouldn’t have, in our wildest dreams, have that happen, and it’s just such a lovely story, because male chimpanzees are such macho guys. I mean, they are. Their brains are a third as big as ours, but they have three times as much muscle. And when you meet them they are just…oh.”
The McClain Sisters:
“always remember what you were taught and always have faith in what you believe in “
Friendships are forever and together we can accomplish anything.
