The film screening will begin at 6:00 PM. Filmed over 23 years, the award-winning documentary Rise of the Warrior Apes tells the epic story of an extraordinary troop of chimpanzees in Ngogo, Uganda – featuring four mighty warriors who rule through moral ambiguity, questionable politics, strategic alliances, and destroyed trust.
The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with collaborating scientist Dr. John Mitani.
This event is produced in partnership with the Chicago Council on Science and Technology and Columbia College.
