Fowl Play and Bold Native: Two HUGE Reasons to Smile!

There are two amazing chances to support animal-friendly entertainment in NYC in the next few days, and they are making me smile big time:


The first is a screening of Fowl Play, a documentary from the folks over at Mercy For Animals. Steve, your faithful guest-blogger (and my handsome hubby), will be heading to the premiere of it on Sunday night at the New York International Film Festival! From the description on the website, it sounds like it is going to be a fantastic film:


Fowl Play illuminates the plight of factory-farmed laying hens through interviews with people who are fighting diligently to save them. A story of hope emerges as footage recorded inside battery cage and other facilities is balanced with personal accounts of the individuals working to protect the often-forgotten victims of the egg industry.


The film also introduces us to animals who survive the system: Hope, a hen left to die in a garbage can but then rescued by activists; and Consuela, a hen gassed on a farm when she was no longer useful but who survives to be rescued at a landfill.


The suffering that animals face on factory farms won't end until enough people are motivated to change it. Fowl Play connects the dots between consumers and the practices they support, and leaves viewers with a groundbreaking message of personal change and community outreach.

The other awesome event happening in the city is a screening of Bold Native, a fictional film about a bunch of kick-butt animal activists:


Bold Native is a fiction feature film. Charlie Cranehill, an animal liberator wanted by the United States government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action as his estranged CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. The film simultaneously follows a young woman who works for an animal welfare organization fighting within the system to establish more humane treatment of farmed animals. From abolitionists to welfarists, Bold Native takes on the issue of modern animal use and exploitation from several angles within the context of a road movie adventure story.


I'll be seeing one of the two screenings of this at Anthology Film Archives on Monday night, and I can't wait! There are still seats available for this event, so get your tickets now, people! Click here for more info.


Bold Native also has a wonderful "Take Action" page that is totally worth checking out too!


What a happy vegan lady I am today! Even if you aren't in NYC, check these two films' websites out and learn more. Hey, there may be a screening of them near you soon!
