Meet Pete the Monkey. Pete was not trained to do this. The film was made in a monkey sanctuary in Bolivia where I was volunteering, and I was just lucky enough to have a camera on me when he started copying exactly what I had been doing (I wasn't so lucky later on when Pete took my camera and started eating it)!

To support more monkeys like Pete we launched a festival in 2012, on the French coast of Normandy. The festival runs annually every July, with all proceeds going to support the monkey sanctuary where Pete lives.

To be part of what we do, whether your an animal activist, music enthusiast, technical wizard, artist or set builder, please get in touch! We want to hear from you!

For more info follow the project and the festival on:
