92YTribeca says…

 One of the most compelling and uniquely dark films of the psychotic woman subgenre, Karen Arthur’s The Mafu Cage stars Lee Grant as Ellen, an astronomer who lives with her feral sister Cissy (Carol Kane) in the large house left to them by their now-deceased anthropologist father. The centerpiece of their livingroom is a large cage, where Cissy keeps her rotating queue of ‘mafus’ (monkeys) who live as long as she will let them before she loses patience and sentences them to death. When Ellen is courted by a co-worker, Cissy’s bubble is threatened and the interloper finds himself at the centre of a violent sacrificial ceremony. Introduced by Kier-La Janisse, author of House of Psychotic Women.
