Le zoo

2018 11 min
Leaving soon

Inspiré d’un ours ayant réellement vécu au parc Stanley de Vancouver, Le zoo raconte l’histoire d’un petit ours polaire et d’un jeune Chinois qui lui rend visite, jusqu’à ce que chacun arrive au crépuscule de son existence. La réputée cinéaste Julia Kwan évoque de façon bouleversante les quartiers ethniques, l’embourgeoisement, l’abandon des aînés ainsi que la notion selon laquelle Le véritable chez-soi habite notre cœur.
