Mysterious planet: roof of africa

Roof of Africa2(c)NHK

The Ethiopian Highlands, a dramatic and extreme landscape, home to animals found nowhere else. Like the gelada, sole survivor of an ancient group of grass-eating monkeys. And the Ethiopian wolf, a dedicated rat hunter and the rarest predator in all of Africa. How do these amazing animals survive in this extreme environment and how did they get here?

Not a part of the 2020 Virtual festival, will be scheduled for future IWFF Presents 2020 monthly screenings at The Roxy Theater.
