The Woman Who Loves Giraffes

Midwest Premiere

Directed by Alison Reid

Canada, Kenya, South Africa, United States, 83 minutes

Follow the life story of Anne Innis Dagg: trailblazer, scholar, conservationist, and giraffe enthusiast. The Jane Goodall of giraffe research, Anne pursued her passion and landed in Africa in the 1950’s to research the then little understood animal. Upon her return to academia, she fought to further women’s presence and equality in the male-dominated arena. Set to current day interviews with original footage and letters, we have an upfront view of wild Africa and one of the world’s most unique gifts.
