Must see cinema !!
I love giraffes. I love Anne Innis Dagg. I love her story except the part where the stupid men deny her jobs based on her sex. But back to the movie......how many of us in 1956 at age 23, would have thought to travel off to Africa to study giraffe. Anne did, and with a whole lot of creative thinking , she managed to locate a farmer who would let her board, while she would go out into the countryside each day and observe the giraffes. Eventually returning to Canada , she wrote and published copious amounts of materials based on her observations, and was deemed to be the worlds expert on giraffes. Anne's personal story is fascinating. The giraffe are fascinating. One can't help but come away from this film feeling more empathetic to the giraffes' endangered existence !!
