Sinopsis

Spanish premiere
Born in 1969 in the forests of Borneo, Nénette has just turned 40. It is rare for an orang-utan to reach such a venerable age! A resident of the menagerie at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris since 1972, she spent more time there than any member of staff. The unrivalled star of the place, she sees hundreds of visitors file past her cage each day. And, of course, each one of them has comments to make… Behind the glass, Nénette is a mirror. A screen for our projections. We attribute all kinds of feelings, intentions and even thoughts to her. In talking about her, we talk about ourselves. In looking at her, we include ourselves in the picture.


Bio

Nicolas Philibert. He was born in Nancy, France, in 1951. He studied Philosophy at the University of Grenoble and, at the age of just 19, worked as assistant grip, assistant prop man and even as an extra in the film Les Camisards (The French Calvinists), directed by René Allio in 1970. Two years later, he moved to Paris, where he worked alongside directors of the stature of Alain Tanner and Claude Goretta. Considered one of the greatest documentarists of our times, he has made several short- and medium-length films, and has directed ten feature films.
