The Zookeeper's Wife

  • Jim Santy Auditorium 1255 Park Avenue Park City, UT, 84060 United States (map)

Directed by Niki Caro
Rated PG-13, 124 min.

This is the real-life story of one working wife and mother who saved hundreds during World War II. Antonina and her husband own the Warsaw. When the Germans invade, they are stunned and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist. To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance putting into action a plan to rescue people from the Warsaw Ghetto.

Friday and Saturday Screenings begin at 8 pm. Sunday Screening begins at 6 pm. 

In his new book, The Crime of Complicity: The Bystander in the Holocaust, Amos N. Guiora addresses these profoundly important and timely questions: If you are a bystander and witness a crime, should intervention to prevent that crime be a legal obligation? Or is moral responsibility enough?

Guiora will be at Saturday May 13th's screening of The Zookeeper's Wife. He will be signing copies of his book in the lobby before the show from 7 pm to 8 pm and will host a discussion around 10 pm on how his book and how it relates to the themes in the movie.
