Friday 15th September 2017 – The Zookeeper’s Wife (Film & Picnic Night)
The time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski.
The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Jan’s stewardship and Antonina’s care.
When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds from what has become the Warsaw Ghetto.
“A compelling story bolstered by engaging performances from Jessica Chastain and Daniel Brühl”
New York Times.
“The Zookeeper’s Wife, based on a true story, is a tender, beautiful, courage-filled movie but also
grim and devastating in parts”. The Guardian.
