Join us for our new monthly film screening and discussion of animal-friendly and eco-friendly films covering topics such as animal protection, animal behavior, humane education, the human-animal bond, and environmental issues. Screenings will be followed by a discussion of the film and a delectable vegan potluck.

Our first screening will be held on March 17th, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m and will feature Rebecca Allison Sansom's documentary about rabbits, Equal Hoppertunity.

As Sansom describes: "This documentary is rated "R" (for rabbits). The film takes a look at the most misunderstood pet of them all, the domestic rabbit, and the people who love them. It also delves into how we treat our pets, by enforcing existing animal rights laws, and taking responsibility as a pet owner, because we can't always trust the well meaning pet store workers, as we see in the film. Some guerrilla style film-making, animations, and the bunny crusaders make this documentary a sobering comedy, you'll laugh, cry, and hopefully learn something new."

Hosted by House Rabbit Society's Rabbit Center in Richmond. Suggested $5 donation to support rabbit rescue, but no one turned away for lack of funds. Please also bring a vegan dish to share for the potluck!
