British Academy Award winning filmmaker Anthony Geffen will return to Ketchum’s Community Library tonight to present the U.S. premiere of his new film “Judi Dench’s Wild Borneo Adventure.”

The free screening will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26.

The film follows 84-year-old Academy Award Winner Dame Judi Dench as she sets foot in Malaysia’s Borneo to explore some of the oldest and most spectacular rainforests on earth.

There she meets the country’s enchanting animals and gets a vivid insight into the importance of the rainforest to life on our planet.

The film features stunning footage as Dench straps into a harness scaling the tallest trees in one of the last untouched regions of rainforest in southeast Asia and comes face to face with orangutans. She learns how this rainforest is one of the oldest in the world--there when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. And she learns how its ferns grow 250 feet off the ground and how it plays hosts to 40,000 types of insects, including giant katydids and dung beetles that clear the floor of poo-balls.

The film, which also features conservationist David Mills, also depicts how the rainforest functions as the lungs of the world and how we are killing them, along with their sun bears, elephants and hornbills.

The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Emmy-winning filmmaker Anthony Geffen, who produced the film. Geffen, who lives and works in London, offers library crowds behind-the-scenes look at his works every Christmas.

His works include “The Wildest Dream” about Conrad Anker and Lou Houlding’s recreation of George Mallory’s ill-fated attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest, “Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough” and BBC’s “First Life.”

Geffen’s presentation follows former Sec. of State John Kerry’s talk on the new climate change initiative that he’s launched with fellow Sun Valley homeowner Arnold Schwarzenegger. That talk starts at 3:30 p.m. with livestreaming at https;//livestream.com/comlib. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.
