Free Schools Program: The Woman Who Loves Giraffes // September 27

Bring your class to this Green Film Fest free schools program at the Roxie on Friday, September 27. There are two shows, one at 10:00am or at 1:00pm.

This event is a great opportunity for young people Grades 5-12 to learn about current environmental issues, get involved in discussions, and meet filmmakers and experts. The program will open up discussions on animal conservation, gender equality, and careers in science.

The film & discussion program will last 120 minutes. A limited number of buses are available for transportation to/from the venue.

Please complete this short survey to find out more about the program, and to let us know if you are interested in bringing a group of your students. You can also reach us at [email protected] or 415.767.1977



Think 'the Jane Goodall of giraffes' and you'd get Canadian zoologist and feminist trailblazer Dr. Anne Innis Dagg, whose unprecedented work and scholarship on South African wildlife was stonewalled by institutional chauvinism. Dagg’s groundbreaking work as a female scientific explorer in the 1950s went unrecognized for decades. This film highlights both her pioneering research on South African Giraffes and her tireless fight for gender equity. Today, the value of her work is finally being recognized.

Guest Speakers: Director Alison Reid and film’s subject Dr. Anne Innis Dagg
