The Secret Surrealist: Desmond Morris

The Secret Surrealist: Desmond Morris


Since the 1960s, Desmond Morris has been known as a zoologist and expert on human behaviour - but the author of The Naked Ape and Manwatching has led a double life. By day, a rational scientist, writer and broadcaster with a mission to explain, and by night, a painter of dreamlike images, which mystify even Morris himself. This documentary looks at his lifelong fascination with the process and the genre.
