When the circus leaves town, Zygmunt and Marysia unwittingly adopt a camel into their home. The couple quickly forms a close bond with the nameless camel, but as the bond grows stronger, their neighbors slowly begin to ostracize them. Scripted by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski, directed by star Jerzy Stuhr and shot in shimmering black-and-white by Oscar®-winning cinematographer Pawel Edelman, THE BIG ANIMAL is a passionate film that exposes greed while celebrating family and tolerance.
