Rachel Mayeri‘s Primate Cinema: Apes As Family, will be premiering in LA next week in a program with Bestiaire and Moving Stories at Cinefamily for a one-week run, 21-28 February, with an opening party on Friday the 22nd.

Chimpanzees, our closest relatives, like to watch television. What would a film made expressly for chimps look like? Created with a primatologist and actors in chimp suits, here is a primate drama presented to chimpanzees at the Edinburgh Zoo. Primate Cinema: Apes As Family was selected for Sundance, Berlinale, Documenta13, Imagine Science Film Festival, and True/False Film Festival.
