    Earthlings film screening

    19:00 – 21:00Wooden Shoe Books, 704 South St

    Join the Wooden Shoe for a free screening of Earthlings as a way to start your Earth Day celebrations early. This intense documentary chronicles the destructive and violent oppression humankind inflicts on our fellow animals, detailing the often hidden aspects of speciesism that pervades our society. Covering pet stores, puppy mills, and animal profession, Earthlings includes footage obtained through the use of hidden cameras to chronicle the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely on animals. It draws parallels between racism, sexism, and speciesism to highlight how our oppressive system exploits animals and workers for profit.
