An exhilarating quest into a remote African forest to examine chimpanzees and understand the roots of human behavior. 

Dr. John Crocker, writer and physician, speaks about his eight months as a student studying families of wild chimpanzees with Jane Goodall in Gombe in Tanzania and how the experience influenced him as a family doctor and father. Tonight’s program, based on his book, Following Fifi: My Adventures Among Wild Chimpanzees: Lessons From Our Closest Relatives, includes film clips, slides, and an audience Q&A.

“A truly extraordinary book." – Jane Goodall
