JAVIER CHILLON – Die Schneider Krankheit

“The Fifties, a Soviet space shuttle crashes in West Germany. The only passenger, a cosmonaut chimpanzee, spreads a deadly virus all over the country…” This amazing documentary by Überblick Films follows humanity’s struggle to find a cure and survive.

The short film has been written, produced and directed by Javier Chillon.
