Gremlins: Faces in the Forest (#1507)

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, marmosets and tamarins are tiny monkeys that share their secrets and a crowded patch of rainforest with the Satare Maues people of the Amazon. For three years, filmmaker Nick Gordon followed scientist Mark Van Roosmalen as he interviewed the Satare Maues people in search of a new species of marmoset. Along the way, he obtained rare footage of an extended family of marmosets, whose close-knit community shares the responsibility of raising its young. Also featured is the complex ecology of the rainforest and the traditional customs and rituals of the Satare Maues tribe. [56 minutes] Closed Captioning
