No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In the farming town of Qalqilya, close to the Israeli border, stands the last Palestinian zoo. Within walls pockmarked by gunshots are its remaining occupants: hyenas, monkeys, and hippos who have somehow made it through. The Zoo on the Road to Nablus, like the animal refuge it honors, is a monument to lives lived against the odds and the indomitable human (and animal) spirit.
