POSTCARDS FROM THE ZOO

Directed by Edwin
FEATURE NARRATIVE 96 Minutes North American Premiere
FILM GUIDE POSTCARDS FROM THE ZOO
If you've ever sent a postcard, you most likely were lucky enough to visit a place worth talking about. If you've ever received a postcard, you most likely have imagined you were lucky enough to visit a place worth talking about. The Ragunan Zoo, as Edwin sees it, is one of those places. And the postcards he's written have a magical message, inscribed in disappearing ink. In his picture you will see: A giraffe. Hippos. A girl who ages with a tiger. A cowboy juggling light. Colorful drifters finding homes in a transient place. Both time and reality are hazy, and the enchanting zoological garden holds captive animals and humans alike.

But for every Oz, there is a Kansas. When Lana leaves the confines of the zoo that has been her home since she was abandoned there as a child, she is introduced to a place devoid of hope and imagination. Stoically, she accepts and explores her role in this new world as easily as she found her fate at Ragunan. A beautiful exploration of humans and animals, Postcards From the Zoo is something to write home about.
