To tylko zwierzeta (2012)

An independent documentary showing different faces of the relation between humans and other species. Who are the animals and what place do they occupy in modern society? Why are they killed in uncounted amounts? Why are they imprisoned and sentenced to unnecessary pain although they want to live, they want to be free and they want to avoid suffering as much as we do? How does the objectification of animals reflect on inter-human relations? If the answer is THEY'RE ONLY ANIMALS, then what does it mean to be human?

This beautifully filmed documentary brings the viewer into the lives of these special relatives of humans, to see the world through their eyes. Through first-hand accounts and rescues, to interventions and interactions with the primates themselves, Sanctuary shows you a wondrous world where humans have given everything to save the lives of these used, abused, unwanted, and abandoned animals and given them a second chance. Narrated by Victoria Summer, this is a story of innocent lives interrupted by tragedy, but inspired by heroes and hope. Meet Puchi, Chucky, Jimmy Sr., Chaac & Bali-each of their stories touches us in a different way.


Facing Animals (2012)

Why do we look away from millions of animals in industrial farms while pampering and humanizing others? In the film Facing Animals pigs, chickens, cows and dogs are the protagonists, humans are the antagonist. We see the world from the perspective of the animals: chicks are thrown onto a conveyor belt, a lady is cuddling a cow in a meadow, piglets are screaming while their tails are cut off, dogs are blessed in a church. The stunning, often confronting, visuals take the viewer on a roller coaster of emotions. It becomes clear how complex and often bizarre the relationship between man and animal is.


The End Of Meat - Eine Welt ohne Fleisch (2017)

Although evidence of meat consumption's negative impact on the planet and on human health continue stacking up as animal welfare is on the decline, humanity's love affair with hamburgers, steaks, nuggets and chops just doesn’t end. In Germany, home of bratwurst and schnitzel, meat is an integral part of the diet. That is, until a few years ago, when perceptions somewhat evolved. Health concerns and meat scandals led to a public debate about the ethical implications of meat consumption and the rise of plant-based diets. Meat producers launched their own vegan products; 100% vegan supermarkets opened; and almost every food manufacturer was adding and labeling vegan options. Is this the beginning of the end of meat? Are we approaching a turning point in the human-animal relationship?

However, active efforts demanding both a ban on fur farming and to convince shops to remove the sale of fur continue.

Fermare Green Hill (2014)

"Stop Green Hill" is the story of a dream. Of a strategy. Of overcoming limits and of individuals. It's also about a multinational, that over two years, has lost its revenues based on the suffering of animals bred for laboratories: 250 dogs sent each month to research centres throughout Europe. The departure was from Green Hill in Montichiari, Brescia province, the destination was Paradise. After years of silence on "animal experiments" a debate has ensued in Italy regarding the legality and ethical justification of a practice that has become commonplace in the whole of Europe. For the activists it has been the success of a campaign led with creativity, determination and with the awareness that even the most just actions may have consequences which must be paid, if the limit of legality happens to be on the wrong side. This is why, after the success of the Stop Green Hill campaign, the job could not be considered completed: a being suffers regardless of whether it is a man, a dog or a mouse.

Racing Extinction (2015)

A documentary that follows undercover activists trying to stave off a man-made mass extinction.

Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth's history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or 'Age of Man', because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. We are the only ones who can stop it as well.  Along with some new innovators, The Oceanic Preservation Society will bring a voice to the thousands of species on the very edge of life. An unlikely team of activists is out to expose the two worlds endangering species across the globe. The first threat to the wild comes from the international trade of wildlife. Bogus markets are being created at the expense of creatures who have survived on this planet for millions of years. The other threat is all around us, hiding in plain sight. There's a hidden world that the oil and gas companies don't want the rest of us to see.

The Animals Film (1981 / 2007)

Shockingly relevant to today, the film probes the use of animals as entertainment, as pets, for food, for scientific and military research. This unique work shows scenes that had never been filmed before and footage uncovered through dogged research. It is noteworthy for its groundbreaking ironic style, integrating diverse 'found footage' including cartoons, newsreels, advertisements, and government propaganda films. When the film was screened in Sweden, some of the most influential politicians of the country were asked to watch it and discuss it afterwards. Ultimately, this led to legislative change in Sweden over the treatment of animals. The Animals Film inspired a generation of vegetarians, and remains an acutely resonant work for today.

The film illustrates both the over consumption and the inequity side of the population issue by following Beth, a mother, a child-rights activist and the last sibling of a large American family of twelve, as she discovers the thorny complexities of the population dilemma and highlights a different path to solve it.

To tylko zwierzęta (2012)

An independent documentary showing different faces of the relation between humans and other species. Who are the animals and what place do they occupy in modern society? Why are they killed in uncounted amounts? Why are they imprisoned and sentenced to unnecessary pain although they want to live, they want to be free and they want to avoid suffering as much as we do? How does the objectification of animals reflect on inter-human relations? If the answer is THEY'RE ONLY ANIMALS, then what does it mean to be human?

LoveMEATender (2010)

Meat production increases every year, but many people still have no idea what's on their plate or what it has taken to get it there. "We eat meat, but killing animals doesn't really happen," says philosopher Florence Burgat. She is one of the many experts who have their say in director Manu Coeman's fierce indictment of the industrialized meat industry. LoveMEATender is packed with facts and figures, particularly in the first half, presented through clear comparisons and playful animations. The objective is to demonstrate the consequences of our excessive meat consumption: for the animals, for the earth, but also for our own bodies. Even people with very tough skin will have to swallow hard when seeing some of Coeman's shots. Chicks that are chucked down a funnel with a thud, floundering cows at a slaughterhouse, geese having food violently forced down their throats. Yet at the same time, LoveMEATender isn't a pessimistic film. Coeman's approach is hopeful, and he also shows us how things could be done differently.

To Skin a Cat (2011)

To Skin a Cat is a documentary film about one man's mission to halt the alarming decline in southern Africa's leopard populations due to a widespread skin trade. Traditionally, only the Zulu royals have been allowed to wear leopard skins. However, in the last three decades the Shembe Church, a four million strong religious group, has adopted the skins into their ceremonial costume. The demand for leopard skins is now astronomical. Because the use of skins is so wide spread and culturally entrenched, law enforcement seems helpless to police this trade in a protected species. Leopard researcher Tristan Dickerson believes that you can't save the leopard without the support of the Shembe people. The film follows Dickerson as he travels from the heart of leopard country to the heart of Shembe and Zulu culture in an effort to discover a solution that benefits all parties. His best solution turns out to be fake fur.
