An escalating human-monkey conflict issue that’s at large in India.
This film explores the unique urban rift that exists between Delhi’s Rhesus Macaques and its citizens; with all the metaphors that this symbolises. Javier Douglas’s keen observational camerawork takes the viewer into a world that’s never been seen before – what it’s like to be a Rhesus Macaque living in one of the most polluted and populous mega-cities in the world. India’s first female primatologist Dr Iqbal Malik is the film’s chief storyteller. She’s been battling against the government for 30 years for the better welfare of monkeys. Her quest uncovers dark dealings that will shock India and the world.
