In the Forest There Is Every Kind of Zoo

posted by on November 29 at 14:09 PM

Congratulations to our very own Charles Mudede, whose new documentary (with Robinson Devor) about the Enumclaw horse fucker has been accepted into competition at Sundance 2007. It’s called Zoo (formerly In the Forest There Is Every Kind of Bird)—and it will be distributed by THINKFilm post premiere. I’ve only seen the teaser, but the zoom onto a horse’s crazy eyes… It will give you nightmares.

Charles and Rob went to Sundance in 2005 with their narrative feature Police Beat. This time, there will be no Miranda July to “steal Charles’s thunder.” I wish them every kind of luck.

Can we get David Brooks to come and write a column about it?

Can it at least be "Zoo, or: In the Forest There Is Every Kind of Bird"? I loved that title...

All your Special Jury Prize are belong to me.

I'm confused . . . I thought it was not a documentary but a movie movie? Is someone else making a movie movie about the EHF?

FYI- If you haven't seen, Drudge Report has a link to the local article about the flick...

It's a documentary, which is a movie movie, but it is not a narrative film, which is probably what you mean by movie movie. However, the writer being Charles, there will be literary elements and speculative, lyrical reenactments. You would not want to give up the documentary elements, which include footage and interviews with real people. WHO HAVE SEX WITH HORSES. Go documentaries!

Thanks, Annie. I was being linguistically lazy; I am aware that documentaries are movies too, and I love them. I ask becauase I met someone (actually was in a scene in a narrative film with him) who was acting in a film about the EHF, and I thought it was this one, but the fact that it was a documentary confused me.
