Monkey Kingdom

In the Sri Lankan jungle, a newborn monkey and its mother struggle to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a group of macaques living in a complex of ancient ruins. While navigating the Troop’s internal squabbles, they must also coexist with diverse neighbors, from elephants to mongooses to the most perplexing of all – human beings. Seamlessly melding timeless storytelling and comic narration by Tina Fey with real scientific observations of macaque behavior, Monkey Kingdom is a delight for animal-loving kids and adults alike.

 

Directed and produced by Mark Linfield and Alastair Fothergill.
