This film tells the story of the peaceful coexistence between humans and chimpanzees in Guinea. Sadly, threats are looming. People and chimpanzees are being pushed out of their homes by bauxite mining. Once sharing water sources and fruits, people and chimpanzees now struggle to survive in areas where mining is underway. Cries of Our Ancestors weaves the myriad voices of the Guinean people, providing poignant testimonies about the interconnectedness of life and the unfolding crisis.
