Beny, Back to the Wild, screening and reception
The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital, Friends of Bonobos, and La Maison Française invite you to a special screening of Beny, Back to the Wild (France, 2011, 84min.) with Claudine André, conservationist and founder of Lola ya Bonobo.

Small reception will follow the screening.

The true moving story of a young Bonobo's return to life in the wild. Captured by hunters and held in captivity in the city of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Beny is rescued by Claudine André and brought to Lola ya Bonobo, the bonobo sanctuary. Through this touching documentary, we discover a rare intelligent species that is dangerously threatened. Beny, Back to the Wild takes us from the streets of Kinshasa into the deep jungle, in an extraordinary exodus. Directed by Alain Tixier and produced by Jean-Pierre Bailly.

Discussion with Claudine André follows screening.
