Still Film Zoo

The Zoo

Synopsis

A perfect, fast and hilarious montage. Using images from Artis (Amsterdam Zoo), Bert Haanstra shows that a couple of similarities can be discovered between man and animal. Particularly the manner in which man and ape are confronted with each other, is significant. The images speak for themselves, human voices or commentary is absent. The ironic music of Pim Jacobs does add an extra dimension to the whole. With regards to man and animal Haanstra limits himself for the time being to this short film, recorded with a hidden camera.
