Written and directed by Colin McIvor, ZOO has been a crowd favorite on the festival circuit and will now be released in theaters and on demand on June 8, 2018 by Samuel Goldwyn Films.
Based on a true story, Tom (Art Parkinson) and his misfit friends fight to save Buster the baby elephant during the air raids on Belfast in 1941.
The film stars Art Parkinson (San Andreas and TV’s Game of Thrones), Penelope Wilton (The BFG), and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger); and is rated PG for thematic elements, some war action and language.
Director Colin McIvor said: “Such an amazing true story from our own hometown really had to be told on screen. It was a fabulous experience to work with such a talented cast and crew and to know that ZOO will be seen in America is fantastic.”
