The Woman Who Loves Giraffes

Join us for a viewing of The Woman Who Loves Giraffes, followed by Q&A with Anne Innis Dagg, the subject of the film and the director of the film, Alison Reid.

In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Diane Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, in fact, before anyone, man or woman had made such a trip, 23-year-old Canadian biologist, Anne Innis Dagg, made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to become the first person in the world to study animal behavior in the wild on that continent.

In The Woman Who Loves Giraffes, an older (now 85), wiser Anne takes us on her first expedition back to Africa to retrace where her trail-blazing journey began more than half a century ago. By retracing her original steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage, Anne 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
