OF ANIMALS AND MEN
POLISH TITLE: O ZWIERZĘTACH I LUDZIACH
Recently, this story has been presented in the feature film “The Zookeeper's Wife” starring Jessica Chastain. Now, we can learn more about its real-life protagonists – Antonina and Jan Żabińskis. Before WWII, they ran the Warsaw zoo which, during the war, gave shelter to many people, mostly Jews. This extraordinary tale of courage and great passion is made of archival materials, staged fragments and testimonies of witnesses and survivors. There is also an underlying story, a slightly surreal take on the common fate of people and animals.
