It's all business and no monkeying around for Capucine, the world's first ever non-human film maker! According to Japanese primatologist and avid film fanatic Hirokazu Shibuya, the unexpected film director Capucine spent ten years within a laboratory for intense training and is the reason for this little monkey's film making abilities.

Recently, Capucine's film 'Oedipe' was accepted into the Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival in France. All cuts, images and sound clips were done by none-other than Capucine.
