Curiosity and Control is a feature documentary released in 2018.
Wonder, exploitation and the urge to preserve; Curiosity and Control explores our complex relationship to nature in a collage-like film with voices from zoo directors, historians and architects.
The film discusses the goal of western Museums of Natural History and zoological gardens to reconnect people with nature. It raises questions about how we perceive nature and our contradictory behaviour of caging what we fear may be lost.
Participants: Penelope Bodry-Sanders, Peter van Mensch, David Hancocks, Mark Pilgrim, Dale Jamieson, Stephen C. Quinn, Michel Saint Jalme, Kieran Stanley
Curiosity and Control is written and directed by Albin Biblom.
The film had its world premiere at DOK Leipzig and has been screened by several international broadcasters.
Producers: Adam Marko-Nord and Sara Waldestam
