Sets out to investigate the hidden secrets of factory farming, and ends up exploring why humans consider themselves to be the most important species on the planet. Part of the annual Animal Voices Film Festival.
Filmmaker Mark Devries sets out to investigate the hidden secrets of factory farming, and ends up exploring an even bigger question—why do humans consider themselves to be the most important species on the planet? And what are the ethical implications of such a belief system? Featuring discussions about animal cognition, emotions, moral behavior and legal status, the film examines the rational basis behind the animal protection movement.
Discussion will be led by Janet Frick.
