Description

Liberation BC presents:

DOMINION
Featuring That Vegan Couple
Screening, Discussion + Q and A

Dominion is a feature-length documentary presenting an uncompromising, damning exploration of the various ways animals are used and abused by humans, particularly in the meat, dairy, egg, clothing and entertainment industries. Filmed in Australia, ‘Dominion’ combines footage from handheld, hidden, and aerial drone cameras, much of it never seen before, to convey both the terrifying scale of an empire built on secrecy – and the individual stories of its victims.

Focusing on the legal, industry-standard practices that occur all over the world, the film questions the morality and validity of humankind’s dominion over the animal kingdom, advocating not for minor improvements to their welfare but for a deeper conversation about our right to exploit those we deem inferior to ourselves.

That Vegan Couple,

Natasha and Luca from Australia are 'That Vegan Couple' on YouTube and other social media (https://thatvegancouple.com).

In 2019 they’re on their “It’s The Least We Can Do” Activism Tour.

Through their Meet-up and Activism Workshops, they educate, empower, motivate, and inspire vegans to be active, and invite people to attend activist events with them in their local area.

They have a reach of 220K+ followers across their various social media platforms, 22Million YouTube channel views plus millions more on Facebook and Instagram, and they use their social media influence to boost the participation of vegans in grassroots activism, as well as the profiles of local animal rights activist groups in the cities they visit on this trip.

In 2018 they completed the same Activism Tour in the U.S.A, U.K, and Ireland, and had great success getting people more active for animals, with local animal rights activist groups reporting record or near record turnouts at their events.

This event is by donation, for Heart on Noses. Located in Mission, BC, Hearts on Noses (HONs) was established in 1999 as a sanctuary for potbellied pigs. "Mini pigs" were a popular pet in the 1980s, and continue to be bred and sold as companion animals today. However, many purchasers are ill prepared or misinformed about the adult size, behaviors, and needs of potbellied pigs, and fail to carry through with a lifetime commitment. In other cases, these pigs fall into the hands of abusers where they suffer cruelty and neglect. The sanctuary, inspired by Willy, now provides a home to more than 40 pigs (including potbellied pigs and full size pigs who were destined to become food). We also have a few non-pig residents.

The sanctuary is a place where these animals have found refuge from the harsh world that sees them as little more than pieces of property. Unlike so many others, they will receive love and care for the rest of their lives. At Hearts on Noses, all animals are equal and deserving of love and respect.
