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.

No need to say that Die Schneider Krankheit (The Schneider disease) is actually a mockumentary, and none of the images in the film are archival footage. But I’ll say it, just to be sure…

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