"If I could make everyone in the world see one film... I'd make them see Earthlings"
Peter Singer - Philosopher and author of Animal Liberation
This screening follows Peter Singer's lecture on Animal Liberation and Philosophy in Bristol at St Georges earlier in May as part of Bristol's Festival of Ideas. EARTHLINGS is one of the most controversial, talked-about underground films ever made. An in-depth study into humanity's absolute economical dependence on animals raised for pets, food, clothing,
entertainment and scientific research. Using hidden cameras and never before seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Taking more than five years to produce, this powerful, informative and thought provoking film may even change your view of the world.
