Storyline: The study of primates has enabled to define “animal culture”. Progressively other species have joined the “culture club”: elephants, dolphins, killer whales and even ravens…Through precise examples and never before seen footage, this documentary fuels the old debat of “nature versus culture” and sheds new light on the paradoxical question: “Is culture natural?”.
