BBC ‘PRIMATES’

Sequential work of Drill Monkeys – Camera and Drone Pilot

The Drill Monkey story takes place on the coast of Bioko, a remote island off Africa’s west coast. Here Drill males must fight for their place in the hierarchy, and those who can’t compete are exiled. The sequence follows two such outcasts, who form an uneasy association to get by. As we get to know an old male who is past his prime living, we come to know the secret life of drill society.
