In the “Jerusalem Biblical Zoo,” Israelis and Palestinians, Jews and Muslims encounter each other every day. They meet as visitors or work as animal attendants side-by-side and on the same team – something normal in other places of the world but that is an exception here, where violence and war is routine.

A friendship develops between the elephant and rhinoceros attendants. Their opinions are often contrary and politically charged – but among the animals they manage to coexist as the ever-present tensions retreat into the background. Visitors such as the regular Hyam, the flamingo-drawing art students and Muslim and orthodox Jewish children’s groups offer insight into the multifaceted realities of Jerusalem residents.

But the peaceful mood is fragile. Life in this microcosm transcends the zoo walls, reflecting events in the city. Issues of freedom and self-determination are raised. HOLY ZOO discovers an extraordinary place at the heart of the Middle East conflict.

Where the Condors Fly - A Cinematographic Journey with Victor Kossakovsky

Where the condors flySYNOPSIS
Chilean film director Carlos Klein accompanies Russian filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky during the shooting of his latest film. In Patagonia, at Lake Baikal and in Shanghai, Victor Kossakovsky explores the singular relationships between places and people on opposite sides of the world. Carlos Klein documents the making of this ambitious film in a very personal way, driven by his own inner search for images that still have an impact on us. While doing so, he reveals his own and Kossakovsky‘s ambiguous attitude towards filmmaking.
“Where the Condors Fly” is a critical and deeply humorous reflection about cinematography.
