Sapience

    Burbano's script resides in a laboratory, one ostensibly for the study of great apes, specifically one orangutan named Wookie. But we the audience witness a larger experiment in human interaction, between hyper-intelligent folks on the spectrum. between races, human sexuality and illness, the effect of singing Echo & the Bunnymen in a controlled environment. How do our minds work? How much do we yet not know? How can we be aware of death and not go insane? It's a thought-provoking, compassionate work, and I seriously recommend it.
