Petting Zoo

director: Daniel Robin
original title: Petting Zoo
country: United States
year: 2019
running time: 11 min.


The director revises a TV report which a local TV station shot with him and his family on the Rosh hashanah holiday in 1974. In the footage which seemed as an expression of interest in the Jewish culture at the time it was created, the author discovers antisemitic and racist tendencies. The title refers to a zoo where domesticated and tame animals can be fed and petted by the visitors.


Daniel Robin already became a prominent independent documentary filmmaker thanks to his first short film entitled My Olympic Summer (2007). In his work, he uses archive footage and explores his Jewish roots.
