The Woman Who Loves Giraffes

The Woman Who Loves Giraffes

2018 | Allison Reid (Director)

This is a documentary film on the life and work of Anne Innis Dagg, the world’s first ‘giraffologist’. An older (soon 87), wiser Anne takes us on her first expedition back to Africa to retrace where her trail-blazing journey began more than half a century ago. By retracing her original steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage, Anne offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first-hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today.
