“Two thumbs up!! Wow! Wow & Wow! A must see documentary! A very, very powerful documentary! Big congratulations to Mercy For Animals for making this compelling documentary and getting the word out.” – Anoo Cottoor, Executive Artistic Director, New York International Film Festival and Senior Editor, Independent Film Quarterly Magazine
Fowl Play takes viewers on an unforgettable journey behind the closed doors of some of the country’s largest egg production facilities and graphically illustrates the heartbreaking plight of laying hens -condemned to lives crowded inside file-drawer-sized cages.
Through touching interviews with animal rescuers, undercover investigators, veterinarians, and animal behaviorists, we hear powerful stories motivated by kindness and courage from the dedicated individuals who are fighting to save the modern day hen – perhaps the most abused and exploited animal on earth.
Connecting the dots between consumer demand for meat, dairy and eggs and the perpetuation of animal abuse, Fowl Play leaves viewers with a groundbreaking message of personal responsibility and the potential each of us holds to change the world – one meal at a time.
The 2010 New York International Film Festival will take place at the legendary City Cinemas Village East. Fowl Play will be screened on Sunday, July 25 at 6pm. Please invite your friends, family, neighbors – everyone should see this film! General Admission tickets are $15 online and include admission to the after party!
