Synopsis

Face to Face with Gorillas by Michael Nichols

Venture through the jungle with Michael 'Nick' Nichols as he searches for one of our closest and rarest relatives. Gorillas are so much like humans that captive gorillas are often made to mimic human behaviors for a human audience. But what do they do when they are left undisturbed in the wild? Nichols leads you towards unexpected discoveries, as he watches these wild creatures fight, love, and use tools just like humans. Up close, he can experience the kinship that many people feel when with the great apes. But he can also see that gorillas need something that humans have striven so hard to both destroy and protect: a safe and unspoiled habitat where they can continue to thrive in ways that are unique to their species.
