Join us at Longplay Bar & Cinema for a screening of the documentary film Speciesism (2013; 94 mins).
The cinema @ Longplay is a small, intimate space with room for 24 guests. Vegan meal options will be available, so turn up early if you like and enjoy some food and/or a drink before the movie.
Modern farms are struggling to keep a secret. Most of the animals used for food in the United States are raised in giant, bizarre “factory farms,” hidden deep in remote areas of the countryside. Speciesism: The Movie directorMark Devries set out to investigate. The documentary takes viewers on a sometimes funny, sometimes frightening adventure, crawling through the bushes that hide these factories, flying in airplanes above their toxic “manure lagoons,” and coming face-to-face with their owners.
But this is just the beginning. In 1975, a young writer published a book arguing that no justifications exist for considering humans more important than members of other species. It slowly began to gain attention. Today, a quickly growing number of prominent individuals and political activists are adopting its conclusions. They have termed the assumption of human superiority speciesism. And, as a result, they rank these animal factories among the greatest evils in our history. Speciesism: TheMovie brings viewers face-to-face with the leaders of this developing movement, and, for the first time ever on film, fully examines the purpose of what they are setting out to do.
Entry is only $10 and tickets are available online. All proceeds go directly to the Animal Justice Party (Vic) to help us deliver a kinder world for animals in Australia's political system.
