Nominated for five Academy Awards®, Universal Pictures’ Gorillas in the Mist, directed by Michael Apted, is based on the true story of naturalist Dian Fossey (three-time Oscar® nominee Sigourney Weaver), whose work studying the mountain gorillas of Rwanda and Uganda inspires her to live among them. But as Fossey develops a deep bond with the animals, she becomes aware of the poachers who are slaughtering them. Fearing that the gorillas will go extinct if humans continue to hunt them, Fossey becomes a fierce advocate for their protection, putting her work, and her own life, in danger.
