Meditative Snow Monkeys Hang Out in Hot Springs

Partake in a moment of Zen with Japanese macaques (or snow monkeys) as they soak in natural hot springs. Meditative music presents the perfect opportunity to unwind in this short from filmmaker Art Gimbel. The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the Web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society. Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase? Email to submit a video for consideration.
