Ever wonder how a cow gets from the field to your table? Ever wonder what really goes on behind the walls of the slaughterhouse? Find out on Sunday, November 11th at 8:00pm when two animal rights organizations - Viva! and Animal Rights Direct Action Coalition -- team up to present a special screening of an award-winning feature length documentary about animals, meat, and culture. In "A Cow At My Table," Canadian director Jennifer Abbott weaves togetherbdocumentary footage (including disturbing slaughterhouse scenes) and interviews with agribusiness representatives and animal welfare experts to present a complex and disturbing view of the meat industry. Every year in North America, billions of animals are slaughtered for meat, but few people know the true price this process exacts on the environment, human health, and most of all the cows, chickens, and other animals who go under the knife. "A Cow At My Table," which won the Special Jury Prize at WorldFest Houston and Best Documentary at the New Jersey International Film Festival, takes a deeply compelling and visually stunning look at an issue that affects us all. Admission is $5. Vegan refreshments will be provided.
