    • Synopsis
    • ZOOMAN is the chronicle of a dream. Buddy's dream has been to live amongst and care for all the wild animals he so passionately loves. In their own backyard (!) Buddy and his fiancée maintain health and habitat for over 400 animals, among them dangerous predators and endangered species.They have created a place for intimate encounters with these powerful animals, an experience that can be transformative for anyone who visits their zoo. These circumstances are fictionalized in "The Life of Pi," lightly treated in "We Bought a Zoo," and movingly documented in "Ashes and Snow." Created in direct cinema style, ZOOMAN takes us through a year in the life of this amazing place and these extraordinary people. ZOOMAN is no fairytale. It is a raw, authentic account of an authentic man living his life with pure vigor and determination.
