The Urban Gorilla

For over a century man trekked into the African rainforest searching out one of his closest relatives. So similar to ourselves, we found these animals irresistible.

The Urban Gorilla is an intimate journey into the lives of nine gorillas living under human care, from a Congolese orphanage to a shopping mall in Tacoma. Through their stories we come to understand the extraordinary intelligence, complexity and sensitivity of this magnificent species. The film examines the dark mistakes of the past - and the efforts to create a better future.
