Unlocking the Cage

Unlocking the Cage traces animal rights lawyer Steven Wise’s fight to gain limited legal personhood status for four captive chimpanzees in New York, based on writs of habeas corpus.  This documentary is now available on BBC iPlayer (Storyville) and screenings are being held in various places around the world.  Wise’s dedication and conviction shine through, as do the tragic lives of the chimps – a compelling and touching film that needs to be seen widely.
