Zeitgeist Films, in association with Kino Lorber, has acquired Allison Reid’s documentary, “The Woman Who Loves Giraffes.”
The film tells the story of Anne Innis Dagg, who in 1956 at the age 23, made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild — years before Jane Goodall would set out to study chimpanzees or Dian Fossey would work with mountain gorillas.
“The Woman Who Loves Giraffes” retraces Dagg’s steps with archival 16mm film, along with new footage and interviews, highlighting her legacy as the world’s first giraffologist and shedding light on the devastating realities that giraffes are facing today.
