The Zookeeper's Wife movie

Today is International Women’s Day, in honor of the courageous women who changed history. Let’s celebrate it with Jessica Chastain and The Zookeeper’s Wife. The piece below is Jessica Chastain celebrating the incredible story of Antonina Żabińska, whom she portrays in this month’s upcoming film The Zookeeper’s Wife.

Antonina Żabińska was a working wife and mother who, along with her husband, became a hero by saving hundreds of Jews during World War II, providing a safe haven for them in her zoo. At a crucial time of sustaining and elevating women’s rights, we feel it is important to share her story to highlight the strength and bravery of women in history who stood up to injustice. So, let’s band together by taking bold action to help drive change for women through purposeful collaboration this International Women’s Day.

Story: The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh of “The Broken Circle Breakdown”), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl of “Captain America: Civil War”). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
