This is a story of an ape who is transformed into a man. The “man” takes a walk and finds a book on mime instruction. This book gives “live” instructions on basic mime techniques, and our hero attempts variations on the instructions. Unfortunately, the “powers that be” cannot tolerate an escaped “man-ape,” so he is returned to his cage. The artistry of mime Paul Gaulin brings a simple and straightforward, but profound story to life. Produced and directed by Stewart Lippe.
