Econintersect:  Deep in the Himalayan heights of eastern Yunnan province in southern China, there is an endangered species known as the snub-nosed monkey.  Only recently discovered, snub-nosed monkeys are hauntingly beautiful primates, different and gentler than others of their kind. Elfin-like, they seem both childlike and wise beyond their years. The family is led by a formidable fighter and his fighting force who guard a troop of 8-10 families. This is a unique monkey society, formed in response to the hardships of the Himalayas. But their survival depends not just upon strong defensive strategies; it also relies upon the cooperation and interdependence of them all.

This film is the meticulous and ambitious work of an all-Chinese film company led by award-winning filmmaker, Xi Zhinong, who led a group of twelve composed of cinematographers, scientists and local rangers on a two-year expedition into the high wild terrain of some of the highest elevation forests in the world, at times following the monkeys above 14,000 feet.  The struggle of the monkeys against the elements is matched by the rigors endured through all seasons by their human companions, all against one of the most scenic backdrops ever seen.  Enjoy one of the most unusual and best nature films we have ever seen.
