See the film Girafada by Rani Massalha at Alliance Française Dubai’s Cinema Under the Stars. The film takes place in Palestine’s only remaining zoo, where the male giraffe is killed one night in an air raid. In her grief, the female giraffe begins to slowly let herself die. The veterinarian knows that the only zoo that can help him find her a new companion and save her life is in Tel Aviv. In French with English subtitles.
