BETH GIBBONS & RUSTIN MAN - LIVE IN 2003 Paléo Festival de Nyon, Switzerland July 26th, 2003
Documentary - The Hoolock Gibbons of Bangladesh have been brought to the brink of extinction by the relentless destruction of their forested habitats throughout the country, even in the most highly protected forest reserves. This species used to number in the tens of thousands, but are now down to the last 200 or so.
Gibbons are highly intelligent, agile and acrobatic tree-dwelling apes, found in the tropical forests of Asia. Most of the gibbon species are highly endangered and are on the verge of extinction as a result of the destruction of their tropical rain forest habitat as well as being hunted for food.
Life is anything but normal for Gortimer and his two best friends, Ranger and Mel, as they navigate Normal Street - an ordinary suburb that has a hint of something magical just beneath the surface.
