Relevant Film Project and 1919 Hemphill are holding their first double-feature event with the 2005 documentary EARTHLINGS (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0358456/) followed by Mercy For Animals’ short film MEET THE SURVIVORS (which chronicles the rescue of 4 baby calves being saved from slaughter).
Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix and Persia White, “Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit.”
Our goal is to open the public’s eyes about the truth within the confines of corporate gain by means of animal pain.
The guest speakers will be there to answer questions and guide us through the process of understanding the work that can be done in order to help these defenseless creatures from being treated so viciously.
- Opening statements from Relevant Film Project representatives
- Screening of EARTHLINGS (Run time 95 minutes)
