Alexandru Solomon To Investigate TARZAN'S TESTICLES
Once a part of the Soviet Union, Abkhazia is now a disputed territory, with a handful of nations - Russia among them - recognizing it as independent while most of the world considers its territory to be a part of the Republic of Georgia. Georgia officially considers it an autonomous republic with its government sitting in exile in the Georgian capital of Tblisi, while officially listing it as a Russian occupied territory. Let's just say the local politics are thorny.Romanian director/producer Alexandru Solomon is working on Tarzan's Testicles, a feature documentary on the Abkhazian Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Pathology and Therapy, established in 1927, a renowned primatology center during the Communist era where scientists tried to crossbreed humans and monkeys to demonstrate the triumph of the Revolution over religion.
Solomon aims to investigate the relationship between humans and monkeys many years after the Revolution, in a "hypothetical country" (as Abkhazia is today) where "there is no question of animal rights since human rights don't exist," he said at the Distribution Forum of the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival.
Tarzan's Testicles is in planning now with a release planned for 2014.
