In New Documentary, Animal Rights Activists Prosecuted as Terrorists

“The story that began to emerge was one of how corporations and the government circled their wagons to stop this campaign before it became a blueprint for other activist communities to apply in their own movements.”

A new documentary “The Animal People” tells the story of the SHAC 7, who were sentenced to prison on terrorism charges over their protest activity.

Great read.

Great read.

“After President Kennedy’s assassination, my father wrote something perhaps intended as a letter to a newspaper or magazine editor. I can hear my father’s anguish:
‘More than a man has died. More than a gallant young President has been put to death. More than a high office of a land has been assaulted. What is to be mourned now is an ideal. What has been assassinated is a faith in ourselves. What has been murdered is a belief in our own decency, our capacity to love, our sense of order and logic and civilized decorum… To the Leftists and the Rightists, to the Absolutists, to the men of little faith but strong hate, and to all of us who have helped plant this ugly and loathsome seed that blossomed forth on a street in Dallas on last Friday—this is the only dictum we can heed now. For civilization to survive it must remain civilized. And if there is to be any hope for our children and theirs—we must never again allow violence to offer itself as an excuse for our own insecurities, our weaknesses and our own fears. This is not an arguable doctrine for simply a better life. It is a condition for our continued existence.’”

It took a lot to make a film like WALDEN: LIFE IN THE WOODS. Three storylines, stop-motion animation, live music, and the glorious nature of Colorado. It all comes together in a Thoreau-inspired yarn of magical realism.

Walden the Film

As Thoreau knew, intuition comes in glimpses and flashes, fits and starts. In moments of crisis, the characters in WALDEN: LIFE IN THE WOODS confront what Thoreau thought was ultimately more profound than the wilderness:

Our inner wild.

The amazing Lynn Cohen (THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE) plays eighty-year old Alice, a kind of detective of the soul. Wading through her murky past, Alice attempts to break free from the walls of her dementia—and her nursing home.

If you push back against what’s expected of you and try to change your way of living, who benefits and who gets hurt?

WALDEN: LIFE IN THE WOODS is made up of three intertwined stories. In “Friendship,” Luke (Anthony LoVerde) leads his partner Guy (Erik Hellman) on a surreal journey into the Rocky Mountains, as well as into parts of himself he dares not confront.
