The mischievous monkey Curious George made his first appearance more than 75 years ago and has been entertaining readers young and old ever since. If not for a pair of handmade bicycles, however, the beloved children’s book character might never have made it out of Nazi-occupied Europe. Brought to life with whimsical animation, Monkey Business celebrates the power of storytelling as it recounts how refugee couple Hans and Margret Rey created an enduring classic.

We all know Curious George - but what about his creators, Hans and Margaret Rey?
German Jews, global refugees, immigrants, artists, Americans. On makeshift bicycles with sketches of a curious little monkey aboard, they rode across Nazi occupied Europe in search of a freedom that would nurture one of the most treasured children’s book series of all time.

Monkey Business is narrated by the talented Sam Waterston (Grace and Frankie, The Newsroom, Law And Order) and is the directorial debut of filmmaker Ema Ryan Yamazaki.
Official Selection: Los Angeles Film Festival, Nantucket Film Festival, and Rooftop Film Series.
