Marc Schmidt / 2014 / Netherlands / 75"

After years in captivity being raised by humans, the chimpanzees in a Dutch rescue centre face the challenge of resocializing with their own species. Marc Schmidt's latest film follows the daily lives of the chimpanzees and their caretakers as they negotiate the emotional confrontations and ethical issues that arise from the ambiguous relationship between man and primate. Is it possible to think beyond the boundaries of our human perspective when trying to understand another species?

Screening followed by Q&A with director Marc Schmidt, hosted by Rachel Hevesi, Primate Consultant and Director of Wild Future.
