NOAH'S ARK 2150

UK, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Environmental Programme)

Director: Vivianne Howard

More money is now spent on video games in a month that on zoos in a year. For the zoo industry it is a sharp reminder that revolution is around the corner. As we head towards the 21 st century zoos face a stark choice: adapt to a new generation or die. State of the Ark goes fast forward to the future, to a time when satellite safaris and virtual reality replace the live experience.
