"Maximum Tolerated Dose" Screening
Date Monday July 16
Time 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details
The Holdout, 2313 San Pablo Ave., Oakland
Event Type Screening
There will be Q&A to follow the screening. Come out and help rebuild the grassroots!

The first screenings of Maximum Tolerated Dose will be taking place as part of a larger West Coast animal rights tour that will also include workshops, demos and musical performances. This screening tour is going to be much different than festival screenings and future distribution, so be sure not to miss out on this unique opportunity! We’re hoping to get out there to meet lots of activists and folks who are ready to get energized and share skills, information, and tactics.


Maximum Tolerated Dose is the first feature-length documentary by Decipher Films. The film charts the lives of both humans and non-humans who have experienced animal testing first-hand, with hauntingly honest testimony of scientists and lab technicians whose ethics demanded they choose a different path, as well as the simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of animals who have seen both sides of the cage. MTD aims to re-ignite the debate about animal testing by bringing these rarely-heard perspectives to the fore.
