SEE NO EVIL
by Jos de Putter (The Netherlands, 2014, 72')
Friday, November 28th, Odeon, 6:00 pm
Cheetah, Kanzi, and Knuckles are the artist, the scientist, and the guide. Three special chimpanzees that human beings have made to resemble themselves, fooling themselves into believing they, the humans, are better. See No Evil is a special film that goes beyond genuses and species. Jos De Putter’s latest film is a beautiful, intense journey into the deepest twists and turns of man, who tries to mirror in the eyes of those who are beyond good and evil.
