INTRODUCTION

Non-human primates are our closest relatives and they are often anthropomorphized in films and exploited in various ways by our species. This discussion will highlight the positive and negative consequences that non-human primates face in the film industry. It will also provide information about non-human primate characteristics.

RESEARCH

  1. Choose a recent or old Hollywood film that explicitly features a non-human primate. (Documentaries are NOT good for this exercise.)

If you cannot think of an appropriate movie, a good starting point for older movies is this website which lists hundreds of films: http://pin.primate.wisc.edu/av/films.html (链接到外部网站。), but not all of these films are suitable. You need to check that the film features a REAL, LIVE non-human primate.

  • Do NOT use films with animated primates, such as The Jungle Book or the Lion King.
  • Do NOT use films with humans acting as non-human primates or CGI primates, such as Planet of the Apes or King Kong.
  • Do NOT use documentaries that focus on natural behavior of primates. Please select a Hollywood film that was made for entertainment purposes.
  1. Review the film and record what primates were featured and note observations on their behavior.
  1. Use your textbook and PowerPoints as resources to critically evaluate how accurately the featured primate was portrayed. You can also use this website that provides “Fact Sheets” on non-human primates:http://pin.primate.wisc.edu/factsheets/ (链接到外部网站。) (Do NOT use Wikipedia.)

DISCUSSION


Answer the following questions in your commentary/initial post. Be sure to label each of your responses according to the number of the question and write separate paragraphs for each answer. This part of discussion should be several paragraphs long with details for each question. Be sure to answer all parts of each question.

  1. What non-human primates were featured? Be sure to include the common name, as well as the scientific name which includes the genus and species name (for example, the common chimpanzee is Pan troglodytes). Use this website or other reliable source to find this information: http://pin.primate.wisc.edu/factsheets/ (链接到外部网站。)
  1. In what ways was the non-human primate anthropomorphized in this film? Write at least a paragraph or two on this subject.
  1. In what ways did the non-human primates exhibit ‘natural’ behavior? Write at least a paragraph or two on this subject.

  1. Should film producers be allowed to continue to use non-human primates in movies? Why or why not? Write at least a paragraph or two on this subject.
