I have been a big fan of Earth Day for almost a decade. I usually spotlight the annual movie release from Disney but this year Chimp Empire from the streaming giant stole the show.
The largest group of chimpanzees ever discovered have built a complex society deep in the forest of Ngogo, Uganda — but ambition and neighboring rivals threaten to destabilize their empire. Narrated by Academy Award® Winner Mahershala Ali and directed by Academy Award® winner James Reed, Co-Director of My Octopus Teacher. Chimp Empire is only on Netflix April 19th.
