Originally released as a motion picture in 1974, this 92-minute documentary depicts the animals in the Namib desert.
Director Jamie Uys worked four years and traveled 100,000 miles in filming this dopcumentary that tuens out to be a spellbinding look at animal behavior with fascinating, amazing and funny scenes.

This well-photographed and professionally produced wildlife documentary from 1974 was, without question, one of the most light-hearted and entertaining nature shows that I've seen in quite some time.

What made "Animals Are Beautiful People" (AABP, for short) so enjoyable (for me) had a lot to do with it containing narration that had a somewhat comical edge to it - Rather than the usual cut'n'dry commentary that seems to prevail in most documentaries out there.

Set in the Namib desert region, along Africa's west coast - The viewer is shown the surprisingly diverse animal-life that exists in this semi-arid territory.

From warthogs, to geckos, to baboons, to meerkats, and to much-much more - AABP gives the curios viewer a close-up look at the many dangers that face these creatures, daily, when it comes to hunting and survival.

*Note* - This documentary's highlight is, by far, the "intoxicated" animal sequence that you really have to see for yourself.... (*Watch video-trailer*)
