THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES
First show: October 04
Q&A with Amy Phelps, Curator of Children’s Zoo & Animal Resource Center at San Francisco Zoo IN PERSON & film director Alison Reid from the Toronto Film Fest after the 10/6, 6:00pm show!
Think ‘the Jane Goodall of giraffes’ and you’d get Canadian zoologist and feminist trailblazer Dr. Anne Innis Dagg, whose unprecedented work and scholarship on South African wildlife was stonewalled by institutional chauvinism. Dagg’s groundbreaking work as a female scientific explorer in the 1950s went unrecognized for decades. This film highlights both her pioneering research on South African Giraffes and her tireless fight for gender equity. Today, the value of her work is finally being recognized. – SF Green Fest.
