Storyline

Who is watching who in the zoo? Is it the visitors watching the animals, or do the animals consider the visitors to be a nice view. Dutch director Bert Haanstra placed hidden cameras in the Artis Zoo in Amsterdam, filming both the reactions of animal and man on eachother. Giving a decisive answer on the who is watching who question is not going to be easy. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

Zoo
18 July 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Like other important documentary works of Burt Haanstra, Zoo(1962) also has a very significant musical score. Music, as in all his films I have seen, drives the editing. And in Zoo, that makes it very refreshing. The shots used of the zoo animals as well as those of the human beings are truly amazing. The moments created, the stories told, the behaviors captured are all done with an immaculate precision. Editing is done with a huge length of footage that he gathered by keeping hidden cameras inside and outside the cages, and after seeing the film one realizes that it would have been impossible to have such shots without the help of hidden cameras. The subject, well, very simple, after seeing the film it becomes difficult to say whether the animals outside the cage are more amusing or the ones inside it. An amazingly entertaining documentary of 10 minutes, worth watching a hundred times.
