Biruté

Biruté

Directed by Toby Gad

She was believed missing in the Bornean jungle, when 25 year old UCLA graduate Biruté began what will soon become the longest primate study by an individual in human history. "Love and grief, heartbreak and triumph, journey with Biruté deep into the heart of the rainforest, and discover the disappearing Eden she has devoted her life to defending."
