Koko, a female gorilla born in captivity and raised by humans, grows up in front of the camera. Her “civilised” behaviour, her intelligence and her understanding of sign language make her an ideal subject for a film by Barbet Schroeder. Films that never lose sight of the contradictions between instinct and logic, nature and culture or the individual and society. A modern fable that is worthy of Aesop.
