I had the chance to catch quite a few films at the Vancouver International Film Fest when it was here early this month. One of the films, Facing Animals, which I reviewed for Vancouver Weekly, was very powerful. It clocks in at just under 30 minutes, and provides an intimate look into the lives of factory farm animals in comparison to other free range livestock and family pets. The film is interesting in that it uses strictly imagery, and no voiceovers to make it’s points. The director also chose to keep the camera at eye level with it’s animal subjects to highlight their experience. This is definitely worth a look if you are searching for a film to connect you more deeply with the other species we impact on the planet.
