Lost Kings of Bioko

Off the coast of Central Africa lies an isolated island. Covered by primeval rainforest & inhabited by a greater variety of species than nearly any other place on Earth. This terra incognita is called BIOKO. The ruler of this realm is one of the world's least known primate species, the drill.

The film explores the secret lives of drills and their mysterious island home as we follow a family group and a newborn who discovers this tropical paradise with all its challenges for the very first time
