In "The Woman Who Loves Giraffes", an older (85 in the film), wiser Anne takes us on her first expedition back to Africa to retrace where her trail-blazing journey began more than half a century ago.

By retracing her original steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage, Anne offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today.

Both the world’s first ‘giraffologist’, whose research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps, and the species she loves have each experienced triumphs as well as nasty battle scars.

"The Woman Who Loves Giraffes" gives us a moving perspective on both.

Anne and Robert were friends at University of Toronto in the early days and Robert gifted Anne 2 remarkable large original paintings - with giraffes! Anne keeps them in her home in Waterloo. But for this Special event, the 2 "Batemans" will be on temporary loan for one day only in the lobby of the Princess Twin Cinemas. ( See below). Anne's foundation will be selling limited edition prints of these paintings at the cinema that day. They are also available at the Batemen Foundation website.
