The NHL's Montreal Canadiens player Georges Laraque and film director Shaun Monson will be at the screening of Terriens (the French-language version of the award-winning film Earthlings.) Larraque narrates the documentary that made him aware of the cruelty towards animals for human consumption.
Earthlings is considered by many to be the definitive animal rights film. In 1999, writer/producer/director Shaun Monson began work on a series of public service announcements about spaying and neutering animals. The footage he shot at animal shelters around Los Angeles affected him so profoundly that the project soon evolved into a full-length documentary about society's treatment of animals.
