About the film: EARTHLINGS (95 mins), written and directed by Shaun Monson and narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, is about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment, and medical research. Considered the most persuasive documentary ever made, EARTHLINGS is nicknamed “the Vegan Maker” for its sensitive footage shot at animal shelters, pet stores, puppy mills, factory farms, slaughterhouses, the leather and fur trades, sporting events, circuses, and research labs. Moby, a dedicated vegan, provided the eerie, haunting soundtrack for the documentary. His beautiful yet melancholy tones serve as an allegory for the innocence and beauty of domestic and wildlife animals subjected to the cruelest treatment. The images and video used in the documentary, which were obtained over a five-year period with undercover cameras, are powerful and disturbing. Almost no narration is needed; the video lens unflinchingly tells the whole story for the animals. NOTE: This film is not rated—viewer discretion is strongly advised. “Of all the films I have ever made, this is the one that gets people talking the most. For every one person who sees EARTHLINGS, they will tell three” – Joaquin Phoenix, actor/narrator “If I could make evernone in the world see one film, I’d make them see EARTHLINGS.” – Peter Singer, author, Animal Liberation “For those who watch EARTHLINGS, the world will never be the same.” – Tom Regan, author, A Case for Animal Rights
