DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, November 2017) National Geographic's three-part global miniseries, Dian Fossey: Secrets in the Mist, offers an intimate account of the life and legacy of the iconic primatologist, 32 years after her violent murder. The series premieres on National Geographic Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 9/8c, and will air globally in 171 countries and in 45 languages. Dian Fossey left the United States for Africa in December 1966 and began her gorilla studies soon after. While in the central African nation of Rwanda, Fossey fell in love with the species and dedicated her life to ensuring their survival. She became an international icon and renowned primatologist, all while fighting an endless battle against encroaching gorilla poachers. The fight likely cost Fossey her life, though her murder was never definitively solved. The series is filled with Fossey's own observations, recorded in her writings and brought to life by Sigourney Weaver, who has a special connection to Fossey. Weaver won a Golden Globe, and was nominated for an Oscar, for her portrayal of Fossey in the 1988 film "Gorillas in the Mist." Weaver is uniquely placed to recount Fossey's firsthand thoughts and feelings. Acclaimed film director, producer and writer James Marsh serves as executive producer on the miniseries. Marsh directed 2008's "Man on Wire," the Academy Award-winning documentary about Philippe Petit's high wire walk between New York's Twin Towers. Marsh also helmed 2015's "The Theory of Everything," the Academy Award- and Golden Globe-nominated film about physicist Stephen Hawking and his relationship with his wife.
