THE MONKEY PROJECT: Stories from a Sanctuary

Danger Dog Films is pleased to announce the release of "The Money Project: Stories from a Sanctuary."
In August of 2005, The Texas Monkey Project art show and sale raised money and awareness for Primarily Primates, an animal sanctuary located in Boerne, Texas. The Monkey Project: Stories from a Sanctuary follows the group of participating artists on their trip to Primarily Primates, and features three of the artists who reveal their work and illuminate the stories behind the sanctuary's inhabitants. Artist Heyd Fontenot examines the sanctuary's most famous chimpanzee, Oliver, the "Missing Link." Photographer Traci Goudie introduces viewers to the beloved orangutan, Punkin, and explores the deep connections we make with animals. Painter Rachel Koper looks at the impact of environmental degradation on the natural habitat of squirrel monkeys.

The 24-minute film is an unforgettable glimpse into the lives of these fascinating animals and the capacity of art to teach and inspire.

Commercial distribution of the documentary is available through John McLean Media.
