HUMAN OR GORILLA?

Part I 20 min, Pt II coming soon

Ndimuh Bertrand Shancho reprises his role as Desmond, the Forest Guard, in a tale of the many challenges of forest use & the conservation of the critically endangered Cross River gorilla. The focus now is on Kagwene, the only gorilla habitat remaining in all of North West, Cameroon.

(This one is funny. The bribe scene is among our favorite parts in the entire series.)

Written, Directed by, and starring Ndimuh Bertrand Shancho

Folk filmmaking facilitated by At Films

Special thanks to Serika Lucas, Nicolene, and the village of Njikwa for all their help, hospitality, and assistance.
