-About the Films-
"Truth or Dairy" is a short 22 minute documentary/comedy, presented by Benjamin Zephaniah, a vegan. He debugs the myths about meat, dairy and eggs industries and discusses the vegan lifestyle with facts, factory farming videos and other quirky and funny skits. With interviews from predominant stars such as: Moby, Uri Geller, Casey Kasem, Heather Small (from M-People) and K.D. Lang.
"Fowl Play" illuminates the plight of factory-farmed laying hens through interviews with people who are fighting diligently to save them. A story of hope emerges as footage recorded inside battery cage and other facilities is balanced with personal accounts of the individuals working to protect the often-forgotten victims of the egg industry. The suffering that animals face on factory farms won't end until enough people are motivated to change it. Fowl Play connects the dots between consumers and the practices they support, and leaves viewers with a groundbreaking message of personal change and community outreach.
