Nenette + Animals and More Animals (DVD)
This 2-Disc Set includes two films by acclaimed director Nicolas Philibert: NÃ‰NETTE and ANIMALS AND MORE ANIMALS.
Born in the jungles of Borneo, Nénette is a 40-year-old orangutan — and the oldest (and most beloved) inhabitant at the Ménagerie du Jardin des Plantes in Paris. Nénette is a captivating study of an enigmatic animal and our relationship to her. more info
