Petting Zoo

Audio Tracks

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.
