A Song for Love - An Ape with an App / Opening Film

Two wild gibbons have a professor and a pop star to act as high-tech matchmakers! The story is of spectacular wildlife and is as dramatic as any opera. Our young would-be lovers are Skywalker Gibbons, a new species announced in 2017, and an ape like us. There are only a handful left, scattered in the spectacular Gaoligong Mountains on the China-Myanmar border. A gibbon’s life revolves around song, and their calls can be heard for miles. A lone female sings across the jungle in the hope of winning a life-long partner. A single male lives twenty miles away – but they can’t find each other over the huge terrain. It’s a crisis for a new and important species – and calls for an extreme solution. Because without them singing a duet across a valley, they will never become a couple.
