The documentary that everyone’s talking about


From the studio that brought you ‘Ivory Game’ and ‘Sea of Shadows’ comes a new and powerful documentary, ‘Eyes of the Orangutan’. A captivating exploration of one of the most troubling facets of modern wildlife tourism, and an uplifting celebration of one of our closest living relatives: the orangutan. Wildlife tourism has become a lucrative business and is now worth around 250 billion dollars a year. These profits come at a cost – and it is the animals who pay the ultimate price.
