ZOO 2008


Zoo is the film largely focused on the concept of female solidarity.

According to our survey in collaboration with sociologists from Undependent institute of sociological research and Smolnii university /st-Petersburg ,female friendship poorely compares with male brotherhood.

Why is this happening? Answering this question can take a lifetime.

The research preceded the film. We created the situation of temporary club called «Laments about men». We have written our scenario based on listening to a number of stories. One of the women represents a wide-spread symptom of a «manlike woman», a female, whose conscience is constructed by patriarchal dominating attitudes. She is successful in her career, but pathologically unhappy in her lovelife. The other heroine represents conservative female position. She is all pity and she is unusually passive in her actions. Both women are wrong. They are the victims of the system and will continue being unfree untill they realize their symptom and strart acting.
