Preceded by the short film, The Poet and the Professor.
Sylvio is a small town gorilla in the midst of an existential crisis. He just might go bananas if he has to spend one more day at his soul-sucking debt-collection job. Deep down he yearns to express himself with his hand puppet, Herbert Herpels, and connect with the world through his experimental puppet show celebrating life’s quiet moments.
When Sylvio accidentally joins a local TV show, his debut is less than stellar, thanks to a series of on-air mishaps. But viewers see Sylvio’s bungling as entertainment gold, and for better or worse, our hero makes a splash. As the show becomes a hit, Sylvio is sent on an adventure of self-discovery where fantasy and reality begin to blend into something that the hapless gorilla could have never predicted. An oddball comedy with a disarming sweetness, Sylvio is without doubt the best “puppet-loving gorilla becomes a TV star” film of the year! (Dir. by Kentucker Audley & Albert Birney, 2017, USA, 80 mins., Not Rated)
