African Film Review: Voices of the Forest The National Geographic African Film Voices of the Forest , is a vivid portrayal of the culture of the Cameroon and Baka people. It does a fantastic job at depicting the theme that the rainforest affects so many people in so many different kinds of ways. This particular stretch of rainforest that lies in Cameroon and in Central Africa is the size of Mexico. In the rainforest, seven inches of rain can fall in an hour. Cameroon is the wettest place in Africa. The film is successful at showing some fantastic images of the rainforest. In the rainforest nothing is wasted. An area the size of football field could contain 40,000 different species of insects. The film shows a Colubus (a monkey type animal) which engages in specialized eating, which must eat 1/3 of its body weight in leaves each day. The film portrays many different kinds of animals and plants. It explains how apes must memorize where and when food can be found over great distances of land in the rainforest. Thus, apes must need eight years of parental care. Yet, as the movie explains plants and animals are not the only living things in the forests.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
