50th Directors’ Fortnight May 9-19, 2018

Zoo

Fortnight 2007, Feature film, 1h16

Synopsis

Zoo is an extraordinary glimpse into the life of a seemingly normal Seattle family man whose secret sexual appetites led to his shocking death. The film explores the ensuing media coverage and public outcry that uncovered a secret community of zoophiles, who call themselves «zoo». This expressionnistic rendering of how apparently upstanding citizens banded together and videotaped their journey into the most taboo realms of behavior, veveals the enormous gulf between what we appear to be and who we really are.
