BBAL: Free movie screening of Dominion – Sat, Aug 11, 2018

Bengaluru Brigade for Animal Liberation is screening the documentary “Dominion”.

Date: Saturday, August 11, 2018
Time: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Location: Enerjuvate  Cafe and Studio, Jayanagar, Bengaluru.

Register here for this free event.

Synopsis of “Dominion”
This feature-length film exposes modern animal agriculture through drones, hidden and handheld cameras. It explores the morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom. It explores the six primary facets of our interaction with animals – Companion Animals, Wildlife, Scientific Research, Entertainment, Clothing and Food. The film emphasizes the ingrained acceptance of global practices that are considered legal and deemed humane.

The Goal
In the age of fake news, corporate propaganda and repression of dissent, bringing truth to the public has become a democratic obligation.

This film aims to present facts about the ways animals are used…facts that can be verified through industry reports, the industry’s own promotional videos, and their acknowledgement after footage of their facilities is released, saying things like “everything on the video was done according to the code”, and “this is meatworks, not a 5 star animal resort”.

It aims to take away the blindfold that people have grown up with, that they’ve had reinforced through all aspects of their lives, and most people are truly (and rightly) shocked when they learn the truth.

The Impact
Reaction to the film has been powerful:
The premier on Australia was sold out.
Australians say that they did not believe that this could happen in such an advanced country as Australia.
The commercial farm industry braces for the impact of the movie.

Production
The documentary is directed by Chris Delforce, who also directed the Australian documentary Lucient (2014), an expose on pig farms.

Co-produced by Director Shaun Monson, who directed the world-famous documentary Earthlings (2005), which was one of the first documentaries to expose industry practices in the USA and has shocked the world.

Narrators
Accompanying the visuals are narrations from a number of stars like:
Hollywood actor Joaquin Phoenix (Golden Globe Best Actor Award)
Hollywood actress Rooney Mara (Cannes Best Actress Award)
The famous tattooist, author, entrepreneur and television personality Kat Von D
And Australian singer song-writer Sia.

2. Please bring one or more 100% vegan dishes to share. We usually have about 15-20 people attending. Bring enough food for 5-6 people to eat well and that’ll be enough.

5. Please bring plates, glasses, bowls, forks, spoons and water for yourself. Everyone brings their own.

6. Please avoid plastic bags and non-recyclable packaging, plates, cutlery, etc. These are very harmful for animals as well as humans.
