THE CLIMATE CHANGE LINK

By telling the story of one polar bear, Nicklen hopes to convey a larger message about how a warming climate has deadly consequences. Polar bears have long been unwitting mascots for the effects of climate change.

NEWS: The truth about captive lions and their welfare The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) and Blood Lions® have released a new short film to the public to create awareness about the welfare of captive bred lions and other predators in South Africa. “Animal welfare considerations are regarded as a pillar of any civilized society. In South Africa, we have a predator breeding industry that has far too many operators paying scant regard to this pillar, a situation that undermines our moral compass. Blood Lions® supports those that bring awareness to all aspects of animal welfare. And when the breeding stops, welfare will no longer be a concern,” said Ian Michler of Blood Lions®. “A common misconception given by the industry is that these lions will benefit conservation – this is not true. These lions are not ever rehabilitated, cannot be re-wilded and will not be released back into the wild – they will continue to live confined to a cage for their entire lives, prisoners to a trade that exploits these animals,” explains National Inspector Arno De Klerk of the NSPCA Wildlife Protection Unit.

A Cow At My Table : A rare documentary from 1998. 

A Cow at My Table explores Western attitudes towards farm animals and meat, and the intense battle between animal advocates and the meat industry to influence the consumer's mind.

Five years in production took Director Jennifer Abbott across Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand to meet with the leaders of the animal rights movement, animal welfare advocates as well as spokespeople from livestock industries.

A Cow at My Table inter-cuts these diverse perspectives with archival films, images from modern-day agribusiness and footage of farm animals shot from uncharacteristic vantage points. The result, say critics and programmers, is a documentary that is "brilliant," "visually smart," "extremely accomplished" and "extraordinarily compelling and powerful."

In the words of Toronto's NOW Magazine film critic Cameron Bailey, "Like all the best documentaries, this film offers more questions than answers."
Lucent Through a combination of hand-held and hidden camera footage, Lucent explores the darker side of Australia's pig farming industry, highlighting the day-to-day cruelty accepted by the industry as standard practice.
