Movie “Of Animals And Men” by Łukasz Czajka

Polish Public Television TVP and its U.S. film distribution partner, Fathom, present a nationwide screening of the 2019 documentary movie Of Animals And Men directed by Łukasz Czajka. Fandango shows that the film is available at multiple cinema theaters in Seattle, on Eastside and other local cities and towns on June 22, 2021.

Of Animals and Men tells the true story behind the 2017 feature film, The Zookeeper’s Wife. This fascinating documentary sheds new light on the story from that movie, which portrayed Antonina and Jan Żabiński’s extraordinary rescue operation during the WWII. 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.
