October 22, 2018
McCarty Classroom Complex
On Friday, November 2 the Center for Animal Law Studies at Lewis and Clark Law School Presents: Eating Animals, a Movie Screening and Q&A with Director Christopher Quinn.
About Eating Animals:
How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate? Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, Eating Animals is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed backed against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, Eating Animals offers attainable, commonsense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives.
On Friday, November 2 the movie screening will begin at 12 pm, and will be immediately followed by a Q&A session with director Christopher Quinn. Mr Quinn will stay for a reception from 2 - 3:30 pm. Registration is required. This event is free to attend.
Popcorn, water and vegan movie candy will be provided during the screening, and the reception will include light appetizers, wine, coffee and tea.
This event has been generously funded by EFJ Philanthropies.
