Groundbreaking Animal Rights Film ‘Dominion’ Makes U.S. Debut
Written by | June 5, 2018
The wait is finally over: The highly anticipated documentary Dominion is set for three U.S. screenings, and PETA will be in on the momentous events.
Directed by Chris Delforce and coproduced by Earthlings director Shaun Monson, this feature-length film takes a deep dive into every facet of animal exploitation and humanity’s vicious supremacy complex over the animal kingdom. To narrate this emotional visual masterpiece, Delforce enlisted the best of the best—viewers can expect to hear from Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, and Sia.
Dominion will make its U.S. debut on June 30 at the Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles (buy tickets here). After that, showings will be held in San Francisco (tickets) and New York City (tickets) on July 3 and July 5, respectively. Be sure to follow the Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City Facebook event pages for any developments.
If experiencing arguably the most cutting-edge animal rights documentary to date isn’t enough to draw you out to a screening, you can also look forward to a special Q&A panel featuring the film’s director and experts from PETA, which supplied some of the footage featured in Dominion.
This is Earthlings for a new generation of soon-to-be vegans.
Through footage from handheld, hidden, and aerial drone cameras—some of it never before seen—Dominion exposes the terrifying scale of the often secretive animal-exploitation industries and explores the individual stories of some of their victims. The film goes beyond asking for improved animal-welfare standards and pushes viewers to challenge the moral fallacies that society uses to justify exploiting beings that some humans judge as inferior.
Whether focusing on animals raised for their flesh or their skin or those who are beaten and deprived so that they’ll perform senseless tricks for humans, Delforce pulls no punches when revealing the bloody, cramped, dirty, and painful conditions that they endure in these industries. Dominion encourages people to reflect on their own relationship with who they may be wearing, eating, or using for entertainment. It’s a great film for vegans to show family members and friends who are curious about why animal rights has become such an important movement in our time.
