Ohio Chautauqua-Brimfield: Dianne Moran as Dian Fossey
June 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Dian Fossey (January 16, 1932 – c. December 26, 1985) was an American zoologist, primatologist, and anthropologist whose 1983 book Gorillas in the Mistbrought worldwide attention to her study of mountain gorilla groups in Rwanda and her battle to save the gorillas from extinction. Dianne Moran’s dramatic depiction of Fossey uncovers a life of passion and trust that challenged the accepted role of the scientist in the world of primates in the wild.
