SSE Air­tric­ity – Orang-utans!

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

A confused orang-utan at­tempts to make sense of hu­man civil­i­sa­tion (this was cre­ated be­fore the Trump pres­i­dency, so I don’t think it’s a di­rect com­men­tary). She wan­ders around a fair­ground jump­ing from ride to ride, gaz­ing soul­fully at the works of the greater ape. She is, of course, try­ing to fig­ure out the se­cret of fire magic in or­der to steal it and take it back to the jun­gle court of the An­i­mal King, Ge­off (he’s a lion). The cam­era cuts away be­fore she forcibly ex­tracts the in­for­ma­tion from a carnie. But be as­sured she com­mits this vi­o­lence with sad­ness, for she un­der­stands death. Core mes­sage: The time of man will soon be over.
