Publisher Comments:

In 1977, acclaimed director Barbet Schroeder and cinematographer Nestor Almendros entered the universe of the world's most famous primate to create this captivating documentary. The film introduces us to the remarkable Koko at the age of three, recently brought from the San Francisco Zoo to Stanford University by Dr. Penny Patterson for a controversial experiment — she would be taught the basics of human communication through American sign language. An entertaining, troubling, and still relevant documentary, Koko: A Talking Gorilla sheds light on the ongoing ethical and philosophical debates over the individual rights of animals and brings us face to face with the amazing "individual" caught in the middle.

Special Features:

New, restored digital transfer
New video interview with Barbet Schroeder
Alternate French-language audio track with optional English subtitles
English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
New essay by author Gary Indiana
Homage to Koko from Marguerite Duras
