In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, 23-year-old biologist Anne Innis Dagg made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild. In THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES Anne (now 86) retraces her steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today. Both the world’s first ‘giraffologist’, whose research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps, and the species she loves have each experienced triumphs as well as setbacks. THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES gives us a moving perspective on both.
Canada, 2019, 83 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Alison Reid
“This warm documentary uses one woman’s singular passion to fuel a tale of zoological discovery, blatant sexism and environmental alarm... Her unmitigated joy is the movie’s secret sauce... When we see this remarkable woman, once overlooked and uncelebrated, return to the scene of her pioneering research, it’s clear she’s finally back where she belongs.”—Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“The passion of Anne Innis Dagg will become your own.”—Raphaela Neihausen, DOCUMENTARY OF THE WEEK, WNYC
“Despite being the first woman to set off on a solitary expedition to observe animal behavior, the zoologist never received proper popular praise for her efforts. With her bighearted documentary... director Alison Reid aims to correct this error, honoring an ahead-of-her-time scientist who defied the patriarchal conventions of the 1950s and stood up to various forms of sexism since then.”—Tomris Laffly, VARIETY
“WONDER-FILLED!”—SPIRITUALITY AND PRACTICE
“Reid has an ace up her sleeve, and this the 86-year old Dagg herself... She’s articulate and well-spoken, but also has a fantastic sense of humor, and will charm every single person watching the movie.”—Bobby LePire, FILM THREAT
“The inspiring saga of a woman who blazed trails in her field offers delights for viewers of all ages.”—Elizabeth Weitzman, THE WRAP
“MOVIE OF THE WEEK!”—ALLIANCE OF WOMEN FILM JOURNALISTS
