Koko Le Gorille Qui Parle (Criterion Collection Region 1) - Schroeder, Barbet
Releasedatum: 11 juli 2006
In 1977, acclaimed director Barbet Schroeder and cinematographer Nestor Almendros entered the universe of the world’s most famous primate to create the captivating documentary Koko: A Talking Gorilla. The film introduces us to Koko soon after she was brought from the San Francisco Zoo to Stanford University by Dr. Penny Patterson for a controversial experiment—she would be taught the basics of human communication through American Sign Language. An entertaining, troubling, and still relevant documentary, Koko: A Talking Gorilla sheds light on the ongoing ethical and philosophical debates over the individual rights of animals and brings us face-to-face with an amazing gorilla caught in the middle.

DVD Extra's:
New, restored digital transfer supervised and approved by director Barbet Schroeder. New video interview with Schroeder. Alternate French-language audio track with optional English subtitles. Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing. A new essay by author Gary Indiana and an homage to Koko from Marguerite Duras.
