Beny: Back To The Wild is a French film about an orphan bonobo, rescued by Claudine André, a conservationist who has dedicated her life to bonobos, our closest primate cousins.

Congolese biologist Suzy Kwetuenda (who appears in the film) will be there to present the film and talk about Lola ya Bonobo (Bonobo Paradise), the sanctuary that saved Beny’s (and other bonobos) lives.

Join us at a free reception before the film where members of the Zoo’s Animal Encounters Team will greet you for an unforgettable close-up with some of the Zoo’s most charismatic animal ambassadors.

Reception at 7pm, film at 8pm
The film is FREE for CIF+VF members, all others just $5. Tickets will be available at the Gateway box office and on line at http://www.movietickets.com/default.aspx?page=theater&house_id=22812&fc=1&language=0
