THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE
Directed by Niki Caro, and starring Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenbergh and Daniel Bruhl.
Casting is now complete on the fascinating true story of Jan and Antonina Zabinski, the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo.
Over 50 actors have been locally cast by our agency in this beautiful film.
When Hitler’s move into Poland began, the Zabinskis used the Zoo as a shield, and suggested that they would raise pigs for the Germans. Yet, under the guise of gathering food in the Jewish Ghetto for the pigs, they actually moved hundreds of Jews through the underground and out to safety.
Even after the war the Zabinskis continued to refurbish the zoo and offer a safe harbor to those Jews whose lives had been so devastated during the crush of Warsaw.
We are honored to be part of this inspiring project.
Can’t wait to see the film.
