Gorilla Gorilla

Anne Regitze Wivel, Denmark, 1983

11 min.DK/Documentary

Gorillas look like human beings - and vice versa. This is the basis of the film which addresses both children and grown-ups. The shootings have been made in the Copenhagen Zoo, and the film shows how the two gorillas behave when they eat, play, take a bath, rest, philosophize, get angry and happy ... just like human beings.
