Bates offers Primate Film Festival

A National Geographic film about Jane Goodall’s work with chimpanzees is one of three titles featured in the Primate Film Festival at Bates College at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1 in Room 204 of Carnegie Science Hall.

The biology department at Bates has organized this evening of films about humankind’s companions in the primate order. Two of the films, Baboon Behavior and Baboon Social Organization, were created by Irven DeVore for his doctoral research project. The third, My Life With the Chimpanzees, is a gorgeously photographed National Geographic documentary about Goodall, the renowned chimpanzee specialist and founder of the Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education and Conservation.

The festival is offered in connection with a Bates course, Primates and Human Origins. The public is welcome to the film screening free of charge. Please call 786-6330 for more information.
