Giraffada

a film by :Rani Massalha

Yacine is the veterinarian of the only zoo remaining in the Palestinian West Bank. He lives alone with his 10-year old son, Ziad. The kid has a special bond with the two giraffes in the zoo. He seems to be the only one to communicate with them. After an air raid in the region the male giraffe dies. His mate, Rita, won’t survive unless the veterinarian finds her a new companion. The only zoo that might provide this animal is located in Tel Aviv .

French Synopsis :

Yacine est vétérinaire dans le dernier zoo de Palestine. Il vit seul avec son fils de 10 ans, Ziad. Celui-ci a un lien particulier avec les deux girafes du zoo, il semble être le seul à pouvoir communiquer avec elles. Une nuit, après un raid aérien dans la région, le mâle meurt. Rita, la femelle, ne peut pas vivre seule et se laisse doucement mourir au grand désespoir de Ziad. Yacine doit de toute urgence lui trouver un nouveau compagnon. Mais le seul zoo qui pourrait l’aider se trouve à Tel-Aviv…
