Brigitte Senut                         Brigitte Senut in the field with native Kenyans        




Sometimes considered a heretic in her struggle against preconceptions, Brigitte Senut is a paleontology professor with the French Museum of Natural History who has a passion for both research and transmitting knowledge. While questioning the position of women in the world of research and that of science in our societies, this film takes us to the Rift Valley in Kenya, the land of Orrorin, and the Tugen community who have progressively acquired scientific knowledge and made this heritage their own with the help of every mission by Brigitte and her team.
