Chimpanzees: An Unnatural History

Behind the Scenes with the Filmmaker

Filmmaker Allison Argo had filmed chimpanzees in the wild, in a remote part of Tanzania. Watching black and white footage of chimps dressed up in human clothing for entertainment was both fascinating and disturbing for her. Argo decided to make a film that would tell the stories of some of the individual chimps she had encountered, so their sacrifices would never be forgotten.
