The 2007 documentary, ‘Zoo’, takes an unflinching look into the life and death of Kenneth Pinyan, a man whose tragic story has become a cultural touchstone. The film was directed by Robinson Devor and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2007. It’s one of sixteen films to have won out of 856 candidates, a remarkable feat that also secured it a place at the prestigious Directors Fortnight sidebar at Cannes that year.

‘Zoo’ is more than just an exploration of Pinyan’s story; it also delves into the lives of all those who were drawn to the farm near Enumclaw, Washington for similar reasons. Featuring explicit material such as video footage of sexual activities, this brave and unflinching film does not shy away from its subject matter. It offers us an insight into something often clouded by media speculation and misunderstanding.

This powerful documentary touches on themes such as sexuality, identity and acceptance in modern society with deep empathy and respect for its subject matter. With its unique approach to such a sensitive topic, ‘Zoo’ forces us to confront our own beliefs about humanity and invites us to reconsider our values and judgments. For anyone willing to explore these issues closely, it is highly recommended viewing.
