Rise of The Warrior Apes tells the twenty-year story of the rivalry and unparalleled ambition behind the most formidable group of chimps ever known, as told by the scientists who have been filming them for 20 years, this is a privileged close-up of a secret world, deep in the African jungle.  


In an investigative approach new to Natural History we tell a story of politics, infighting and war as well as compassion and advanced cooperation in chimpanzee society. Using previously unseen archive footage and intimate testimony from the scientists, this is a story of the unbreakable friendships and intense rivalries inside a mighty chimpanzee empire.
