They are deified, persecuted and chased away. Corvids are the only animals that have observed and studied us humans for thousands of years, but also have the ability to pass on this accumulated knowledge to their offspring. They are extremely clever and are said to have a very extensive memory. Corvids are also known as "feathered apes". But how clever are these birds really? And what are the differences and similarities between corvids and primates? And what do the crows know about us in return? "Is there a collective knowledge about humans in the flocks of crows?", is the central question of this documentary film by Martin Schilt.

Following the screening on Thursday, February 8, 2024, we invite the audience to discuss all these questions with primate researcher Dr. Claudia Fichtel from the German Primate Center in Göttingen and corvid expert Dr. Claudia Wascher from Anglia Ruskin University (England).

The film is narrated in German, but most interviews with researchers in film are in English with German subtitle.
