Review: In 1956, Anne Innis Dagg completed a solo trip to South Africa to study giraffes. This was years before Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey would embrak on similar journeys, and Dagg was only 23 years old. The struggles that she faced then and in her astounding career since due to her gender trace a stunning timeline that the film brings to light. This documentary balances the feats of the past with the alarming problems of the present. Dagg’s work, reserarch and foundation have given the world a better understanding of giraffes and broke barriers at every turn, and this film gives Dagg a new and needed platform.
