Movie “Of Animals And Men” by Łukasz Czajka

The Embassy of Poland in Washington, DC and The Bender JCC association invite you to the 2019 documentary movie Of Animals And Men directed by Łukasz Czajka.

Of Animals and Men tells the true story behind the 2017 feature film, The Zookeeper’s Wife. Two years after the release that movie, which portrayed Antonina and Jan Żabiński’s extraordinary rescue operation during the WWII, this fascinating documentary sheds new light on their story. The couple saved hundreds of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto by hiding them in the city’s zoo facilities and their own villa, right under the noses of the Nazis. Composed of archival footage and interviews with their daughter, Teresa Żabińska, and survivors, this film is a moving tribute to the courageous couple. Weaving together archival materials, recreations, and testimonies of witnesses and survivors, Of Animals and Men tells an extraordinary tale of courage and passion.

Q&A with the movie director will follow directly after the screening.
