Zoo #

Released 12/14/1962

Description: A perfect, quick and hilarious montage. Using photos from Artis (Amsterdam Zoo), Bert Haanstra shows that a couple of similarities can be discovered between human and animal. Particularly the manner in which human and ape are confronted with every other, is significant. The photos speak for themselves, human voices or commentary is absent. The ironic melody of Pim Jacobs does add an additional dimension to the whole. With regards to human and animal Haanstra limits himself for the time being to this short film, recorded with a hidden camera. Soon on, in few large films, he would return to this subject.

Donor Unknown Reviews:

Donor UnknownIf you're father was a sperm donor, you'll be reminded of him each time you masturbate.Instead of testing with themselves, however, the offspring in this documentary are trying to locate their donor dad.In the 1980s, Jeffrey Harrison spent a nice deal of time making deposits at a cryobank under the name: Donor 150.Twenty years later, JoEllen Marsh, one of the many kids conceived from Jeffrey's genes, connects with a half-sister over the Internet.The peculiarity of the reunion attracts the Fresh York Times and eventually more siblings and the donor's identity are uncovered.But are his progenies ready to visit the beach where their dad lives in an RV?A fascinating real storyline about the past catching up with you, Donor Unknown's paternal pathos blends well with the genetic similarities prevalent throughout Jeff's brood.Either way, the largest enemy of donating to sperm banks is still Kleenex.Yellow Lightvidiotreviews.blogspot.ca


I read a short review for this documentary, and it sounded quite interesting, because I have seen comedy test of sperm donation, such as Jackass and Street Trip, but never seen anything about the true nature of it. Basically this true, but stranger than fiction, storyline sees Pennsylvanian born twenty year old JoEllen Marsh searching for her biological father, she found out when she was younger that she was born from an anonymous donation of sperm place in her mother's system. At the same time we see the boy who donated this sperm at California Cryobank, lonely hippie like animal lover Jeffrey Harrison, aka Donor 150, living in an RV on Venice Beach, who confesses to donating hundreds of times, mostly for the money, but also to support those who cannot bare kids properly. JoEllen joined a site specialising in supporting folks search their anonymous donor number connection in order to search and meet their half brothers and sisters. Eventually a number of these half relatives have met and found connection with every other, and towards the end we do see see JoEllen and biological father Jeffrey, and one or two of the half siblings, all meet up and search resolution. I can accept the breaks in the storyline to see what goes on in the donation rooms and how sperm is used and whatever can be a tiny annoying, but you have to know that type of items at the same time, and the storyline to be honest I found a tiny weird and lame, but overall it's not a terrible documentary at all. Okay!
