See The Keepers
With unprecedented behind-the-scenes access at the Memphis Zoo, "See the Keepers" gets up close and personal with big cats, penguins, snakes, Komodo dragons, and their human caretakers. When Kofi the giraffe faces an uncertain future, the film bears witness to the complexity of caring for animals in captivity, and the love and fortitude of the keepers that care for them.
