Watch: Unlocking the Cage 2016 123movies, Full Movie Online – Follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans, by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform a chimpanzee from a ‘thing’ with no rights to a ‘person’ with legal protections..
Plot: Renowned filmmakers D A Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus follow determined animal rights activist Steven Wise into the courtroom for an unprecedented battle that seeks to utilize the writ of habeas corpus to expand legal “personhood” to include certain animals. Wise’s unusual plaintiffs—chimpanzees Tommy and Kiko, once famed showbiz stars—are now living in filth, struggling to survive. Wise and his impassioned legal team take us into the field, revealing gripping evidence of such abuse and plunging us into the intricacies of their case as they probe preconceived notions of what it means to be a non-human animal.

Who is a Legal Person?
The next step in Human Evolution is the documentary film, Unlocking the Cage. The film follows Non Human Rights Project, Founder and Attorney Steven Wise, as he sets out to prove that cognitively complex animals such as Chimpanzees, Elephants, Whales and Dolphins have the capacity for limited personhood rights. Academy Award Nominated Filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus spent several years documenting Steven Wise and his journey to ask the question, what does it mean to be autonomous and should sentient beings have the right to freedom? If you liked The Cove and An Apology to Elephants then you’ll love Unlocking the Cage! Not since Blackfish has there been a film as important to the Anti-Captivity Movement.
Review By: anthony_palmiotto
This documentary and movement is cutting edge and controversial. I am so grateful the filmmaker has given this topic long overdue attention. Unlocking The Cage has at least started the conversation and humans are beginning to listen. Brilliant. I was very inspired to get involved and wanted to learn more. I can only hope that Steven Wise and The Non Human Rights Project see the fruits of their labor sooner than later. Speciesism is causing the destruction of the planet and I hope this film becomes more widely available because I will tell everyone I know to see it. This movie is a must see and humans need to start thinking beyond themselves and care about other beings we share the earth with.
