VIRGIL FILMS PRESENTS
SEE THE KEEPERS: INSIDE THE ZOO
Go behind the scenes and explore the lives of those who care for exotic animals at one of the top zoos in the country.
New York, NY (August 15th, 2016) – Visitors have only a common knowledge of what zoo keepers experience on a daily basis. Now for the first time, viewers will get to experience a one of a kind account of what really goes on in areas that are forbidden to the general public. The stories of dedicated and hardworking zookeepers are uncovered in the heartwarming documentary SEE THE KEEPERS: INSIDE THE ZOO, arriving on Digital HD and DVD from Virgil Films on September 13th.
SEE THE KEEPERS: INSIDE THE ZOO takes viewers inside the daily work events, from menial to major, of the hard working keepers at the Memphis Zoo. The documentary focuses on each of the zookeeper’s love, appreciation and dedication towards their line of work and takes an unprecedented look at the grounds, exploring areas inside that no one has seen before. It is evident that these dedicated workers have an admiration and respect for the animals. Viewers see this first-hand when they are introduced to Kofi, a five-year-old male giraffe who has not been on exhibit for the past three years. Kofi’s story illustrates the complexity of caring for animals in captivity and shows the love and fortitude of the keepers that care for them.
The film is produced and directed by two Memphians, Sara Kaye Larson and Joann Self Selvidge, and shot entirely at the Memphis Zoo. It is an exclusive zoo story with universal appeal, telling the larger stories of our relationships to work and animals.
SEE THE KEEPERS: INSIDE THE ZOO will be available to own for digital download and streaming on all digital retailers as well as on DVD September 13th, 2016
