Redemption Impossible - In the Midst of Humans
you wake up in a box.
It is just high enough for you to stand.
You are well treated:
Every day you are fed through a clack.
Your stay serves a higher purpose.
But you wouldn't know.
At the far end of Austria is one of the most special places on earth. At this focal point meet the moral challenges of our civilization: guilt, responsibility and compensation. In an overgrown former safari park, hermetically sealed off from the rest of the world, there live 40 chimpanzees from the former experimental laboratory of the pharmaceutical company Immuno. Infected with HIV and hepatitis viruses. Traumatized, unhinged and highly aggressive. They hate humans and have every reason to. With them are four female keepers, two of whom were their jailers at the laboratory. Today they manage the unique rehabilitation project, aiming to get the chimpanzees out of their isolation and into species-appropriate groups.
