More on Groundbreaking Film Documentary your Mommy Kills Animals: A Real Look Not Only at Animal Rights, But the State of Privacy and Speech Rights

I’ve heard a lot about this documentary. Though it appears to only focus on animal rights, that is not the case. Because animal rights is falsely considered a domestic threat, the new Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act is the first major step toward the destruction of civil liberties – free speech, privacy, etc. for a while. The film uses animal rights to take a broader look at this issue. As the article below states, “What is even more intoxicating about this film is its social justice argument on "freedom of speech" issues, comparisons to the "civil rights movement," effective protesting measures…”

And even more telling is that this film was put together by “Five African American men (Dennis Banks, Nathan Deal, Earl Easley, John Hamilton and Anthony Simien) from Los Angeles known as Four Corners Capital.” This is important, as it gives more weight to the ability to actually discuss civil rights issues. Having only white film makers discuss civil rights can work, but it’s likely they haven’t experienced as much of the issue as black film makers would.

Go check out the film!

From Real to Reel: Five African American Men First Film Project Equals 2008 Academy Award Buzz

http://www.blacknews.com/pr/yourmommykillsanimals101.html

Los Angeles, CA (BlackNews.com) - Five African American men (Dennis Banks, Nathan Deal, Earl Easley, John Hamilton and Anthony Simien) from Los Angeles known as Four Corners Capital have stepped into the world of film as Executive Producers. What is unique about these African American men is the film choice they have decided to back, which is starting to pique the interest of various movie industry leaders and film festivals around the world. Among the movie industry's attention to their first project, much talk has been suggested of a 2008 Academy Award.

They are not following a traditional film path of "the hood", "rags to riches", or "church-going" stereotypes. These five young brothers have elected to make others aware of the number one domestic terrorist threat in the United States through the documentary Your Mommy Kills Animals.

Your Mommy Kills Animals was conceptualized and directed by Academy Award-winning Producer/Director Curt Johnson. It takes an in-depth look at the animal rights movement and the FBI's recent declaration; calling animal rights activists the number one domestic terrorist threat to the United States.

Scheduled for a Fall 2007 release, Your Mommy Kills Animals is an overall look at the animal rights movement showing the good, the bad and the ugly in the movement. This film also covers the landmark case against Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (better known as the SHAC 7) and the resulting conviction, which literally has changed the course of activism in this country. What is even more intoxicating about this film is its social justice argument on "freedom of speech" issues, comparisons to the "civil rights movement," effective protesting measures, and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) government agency's response to animals after Hurricane Katrina.

Although this documentary delivers arguments from both "Animal Welfare Advocates", as well as, "Animal Rights Activists" the film provides a real examination of:

* What our tax dollars are wasting away on?
* Does "free speech" exist for everyone?
* Are organizations' beliefs true to the core?
* Is profiling being taken to another level?
* Who truly benefits in the animal rights movement?
