The critically-praised French feature production of "BONOBOS" (starring naturalist Claudine Andre') will enjoy a special exhibition engagement through MUSEUMS in the USA beginning in February, 2015 from Hannover House. The release strategy of showcasing the film through Natural History Museums is uniquely designed to maximize visibility and revenues prior to the film's home video and video-on-demand release. Key release markets include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Seattle and Portland. Museum exhibitions are being negotiated with the Smithsonian Institute, The Chicago Museum of Natural History, The Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, and a variety of Children's "discovery" style museums.
Claudine Andre' is a rapidly rising star in the worldwide conservation community. She formed the Lola Ya Bonobo Rescue Center in the Congo more than 20 years ago, and has since saved over 1,000 orphaned, captured or injured Bonobo Apes, with hundreds now being reintroduced into the wild. Claudine Andre' has agreed to assist with the Hannover House release by participating in media interviews and feature stories, and if available, to attend the USA premiere of the film at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
