In celebration of the 50th anniversary, host Anna Van Valin takes a look at the groundbreaking sci-fi film Planet of the Apes, and the legendary film franchise it launched. Through interviews with some of the artists and filmmakers from the franchise, host Anna Van Valin explores how they created an exotic, terrifying fantasy world –and made us examine our own world in the process. In addition, actor and movement director Terry Notary provides insight into how he coached the actors in the recent trilogy to become the apes, and primate anthropologist Natalia Reagan helps explain the ape-human connection that makes this series endlessly compelling. Screen Dive is brought to you by 20th Century Fox.
