EARTHLINGS -- the movie.

Postby Horus » Thu Apr 26, 2007 10:15 am

AN INVITATION TO A SPECIAL FILM SCREENING

AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH spelled global disaster.
FAST FOOD NATION told the dark side of the All-American Meal.
Now comes a CONTROVERSIAL DOCUMENTARY THAT CHALLENGES HUMANITY'S UNSPEAKABLE ACTS OF BETRAYAL.
THIS FILM WILL SHOCK YOU...

SAFE invites Aucklander's to attend the New Zealand premier screening
of "Earthlings" on Tuesday the 15th May at the Academy Theatre.

"Earthlings" has screened at international film festivals overseas and is narrated by Academy Award nominee, Joaquin Phoenix.

"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

Earthlings is a feature length award-winning documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals for pets, food, clothing,
entertainment and scientific research. It is highly challenging and
provocative. It is a documentary not for the faint-hearted.


"This is the single most powerful and informative movie about society's
treatment of animals. A must see for anyone who cares enough to know"

Woody Harrelson

"Earthlings is nothing short of a masterpiece."
Lionel Friedberg, Producer of Animal Planet

"It is a rare experience to be changed by a film. Earthlings has that power"
Persia White, Actress

Academy Theatre, Auckland,
8pm, Tuesday, 15 May 2007.

Book now by emailing: auckland@safe.org.nz or calling 09 379 7749.

We should discuss these issues and hunt for solutions, not go for guns. (That's the enemy's "solution".)

watching now and fucking maddening but if people can't even see humans as animals how will animals be saved.

one and the same and to me unfocussed away from the issue that creates it.

I also saw that dolphins were fished because it's cultural and to do with fish stocks at that particular village but are overfished due to economics due to poor market 'forces' to be sold onto collectors and water parks etc generally in the rich west, don't question individual cruelty by humans though, they just are, specially when conditioned like some animals are to subversiveness by proxy and from babes.

all this medical research also is based on economics as they don't have the means to carry out proper research and progress is stinted which is 'systematic' as a whole which they also learnt off nazis, so what did anyone fight for in world wars!? not for us anyway, bout time in the new millenium 07.

aws no brilliant!! doco though, covering all aspects.

and go see peepz, who need another perspective and show to parents, friends and co and neva eva turn into a nazi.

fight! that is all.

I can do it to DVD format if you like. Just Pm me your address and I can send it off tomorrow.

Horus I'd be really keen to hear how this goes, I've been thinking of doing a similar screening down here. Would be keen to know how many people you get along, and what the $12 entry goes towards.

I'm not organising the screening, I just re-posted the msg I recd from SAFE, who I think are doing it. But since it is in a commercial cinema, someone is paying big to screen it. I assume that SAFE will pocket any of the admission charge left over after theatre hire or whatever.

And now that I've downloaded it, I doubt I'll attend the screening. But I totally recommend you do a screening of it, if you can locate a venue. But be careful of advertising it widely or you may run foul of the big film companies (unless you want to talk to the producers and do it legitimately.)

When I do screenings, I do them "no charge". And everyone is "BYO."

So, anyone got a biggish shed / room / hall? Time to plan some mid-winter movie nights!

I'm sweet for a venue, I have friends who recently did film screening for fund raising for a conference. The uni down here is pretty good for stuff like this.

I'll definitely try and make it free.

Shaun Monson who wrote and directed earthlings has some videos on Youtube about making the film and distributing it. Sounds like they would be pretty supportive of free screenings.

I'll talk to some people about it tomorrow and see what I can do.

If you do a free show, try to get some advance promo in Critic. Maybe even a short article on how the film is being received by viewers, you could quote some of the comments on this thread even.

I emailed the address on the isawearthlings website and got this in reply, so looking good:

Thanks for your interest in the film. Email us with your mailing
address and we will send you a complimentary official DVD to show at
your school. We would ask that you please don't make copies or
distribute unofficial/downloaded versions of the film or DVDs. There
has been a lot of illegal downloading and pirating on the internet this
past year, and though this is most encouraging from an educational
standpoint, it has also been very disappointing for my co-producers who
helped finance this film and paid for all the rights.

And please encourage your fellow students to go the the film's official
web site to buy copies. Thanks again for your support.

Respectfully,
Shaun Monson

No, it won't ruin yr meal, but it might provoke you to think about life on this planet.

indeed and this is from the other side as it were.

good work croc and is 'critic' nz's version of a film review mag horus? and people should go see together(or watch in different surrounds) as formulates community and discussion and debate and commonalities and differences which can be used as strengths or realisations about what middle ground we need to come too, cover and succeed in better solutions and progress or ya could wait till ya get home and express it other ways, net, zines, jornals etc etc plans.
(sorry what's that waftiness in here haha!)

i'm proud of people when they do stuff or whatever they can to enlighten and change stupid ignorant attitudes.

punk maybe dum fun but it ain't stupid.

this movie made me wince but as people often say, get hard, get over it and get busy.

Critic is the Otago uni student mag. It's pretty shit. Mainly caters for the 'scarfie' culture, whatever the fuck that is.

SAFE arent organising the screening, they are just supporting and promoting it. The screening is being organised and paid for by one very cool animal rights activist in Auckland. if lots of people go she just might cover her costs!
In the unlikely event that it makes a profit, the money will go directly into animal rights campaigning
