New York Times - 12/04/1979
"...Koko the gorilla has one of those fabulous faces....Schroeder has assembled this funny, provocative documentary with gratifying intelligence and care."

Product Description:

French director Barbet Schroeder's documentary focuses on Koko, a gorilla trained by scientists at Stanford University to communicate using American Sign Language. Far from animal-rights propaganda, this film asks penetrating questions about the nature of these experiments. Is Koko simply being brainwashed' Is she actually thinking with language or simply repeating learned behaviors' A thought-provoking and sobering statement on current relations between mankind, his closest relatives, and nature as a whole.
