You have already come across the musical fishes and the walrus that claps and sways with the tune on saxophone. But wait till you set your eyes upon the first movie named Oedipe made by a “non-human animal“! Capucine, a capuchin monkey who is the director of the film has been trained for 10 years under the guidance of Japanese primatologist and a movie lover Hirokazu Shibuya to venture into this world of creativity. No wonder she has her own director’s chair and a megaphone!
Her creation, Oedipe has been accepted at the Clermont-Ferrand film festival in France. According to Hirokazu Shibuya, the primate director is made available to a variety of images and sound from which she selects the ones needed for her film.
