THE BONOBO CONNECTION (Congo / USA, 2012, 32 min.)

Selections from the 2013 United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival

Shown with A2-B-C

Washington, D.C. Premiere Along with the chimpanzee, the bonobo ape is the closest human relative. This rare and intelligent species, which can only be found in one country, the Democratic Republic of Congo, in central Africa, could be the first of the great apes to go extinct, threatened by deforestation, predation for bush meat and war. To understand this powerful yet peaceloving species is to reflect on our own origin and gain insight into how we communicate with one another. Narrated by Ashley Judd. Directed and produced by Irene Magafan.

Discussion with Jasmina Bojic, Founder and Executive Director, United Nations Association Film Festival; Edward M. Barrows, Director, Georgetown University Center for the Environment (CEF), two CEF interns and filmmaker Irene Magafan, follows screening.
