Monkey Love

1 x 60' - Channel 4 (2006)


Shortlisted for a Grierson Award, this documentary is a revealing examination of the life and work Harry Harlow, an American

research psychologist who was responsible for some of the most controversial experiments to have been performed in animal laboratories.

Harlow’s experiments on monkeys were an attempt to understand the nature of paternal relationships. The film explores Harlow’s strained

relationship with his own children and asks if cruelty can really teach us anything about love.
