Koko a talking gorilla ( visu )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and French and held by 385 libraries worldwide
Koko, a Talking Gorilla is a documentary from 1978 that observes a zoo-born female gorilla in the fifth year of an experiment in human-simian communications. Dr. Penny Patterson has taught Koko hundreds of sign-language words in American Sign Language. Observing Koko's daily routine, her responses, her rejection of a new yellow sweater for her worn older red one, and her initiation of new subjects in conversation prompts more questions than it answers. What separates man from animal? The ability to construct a society, to speak, or to understand complex thought? No matter the conclusions, the film remains a compelling document of a fascinating experiment
