A story of love, sex and teen pregnancy in San Antonio, Texas. PETTING ZOO, written and directed by Micah Magee, is the portrait of a young woman coming into her own, in an environment that does not always present ideal circumstances.
“Beautifully observed and heart-achingly authentic. For the truest depiction of how it feels to come of age in the Lone Star state, look no farther than Micah Magee’s “Petting Zoo,” a piercingly authentic, diamond-in-the-rough debut inspired by its director’s San Antonio upbringing.” – Variety Magazine
“Shot with a tiny crew and mostly non-actors, this quiet film captures San Antonio’s stark, sprawling poverty and off-key beauty. Gritty without being sensationalistic, it’s a moving debut from a strong talent.” – Austin Chronicle
