Zooland

DOCUMENTARY

2016 | HD | color | stereo | 33 min

Spacious landscapes and a cloudless sky decorate the walls surrounding the little zoo in Palestine: screaming, illusory allegories of freedom. The humans feed the animals and speak to them. An ordinary day. If it were not for the giraffe, which was shot dead by the Israeli military; or for the lions who are only allowed to be imported neutered. Timidly, the workers start talking about what it means to live and work in a country under occupation.
