Monsters Present The Animal People (Premiere Screening)
These are troubling times.
Largely because we now have the ability to be more aware of the times in which we are living, whereas in times gone past all Alex Trebek had to do was smile and the comforting dopamine would start exploding like the eyeballs of a native animal on present-day Kangaroo Island.
But it’s 2020, Alex Trebek has cancer and we feel like irredeemable monsters for that Kangaroo Island reference.
But, again, considering it’s 2020, being irredeemable monsters means that we’re in good company. At least according to The Animal People.
Yes, a new documentary with executive producer Joaquin Phoenix, The Animal People, is a chilling portrait of what happens when activism rattles the institutions of power. Six young Americans find themselves targeted as terrorists by the US government for their involvement in a controversial campaign against the world’s largest animal testing laboratory.
This terrifying but inspiring David vs Goliath battle raises powerful fundamental questions about free speech, social change and corporate power that have never been more urgently relevant in our world.
Come experience the film at its premiere.
A searing look at the profoundly corrupt institutions of power funded by unbridled wealth…produced by a film star whose net worth is $30 million.
Well, like we said twice before. It’s 2020.
Irony is a given.
