Event description: From the creators of Bears and Chimpanzee, Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom is a documentary filmed among the legendary jungles and ancient ruins of South Asia. It’s home to a lively and clever band of monkeys who play, eat, and groom each other all day. But things get more complicated for one female when she becomes a mother. As Maya cares for and teaches little Kip the ways of the world, she has to use all her skills to protect him from one unexpected challenge after another. She even has to take on higher-ranking members of the clan. With stunning photography, and narration by comedian Tina Fey, this heartwarming story of a young mother and her adorable baby will delight and amaze the whole family.
