Film Screening: Maximum Tolerated Dose

Maxium Tolerated Dose Movie Poster

 

As part of National Primate Liberation Week, NARN and Seattle ADL will be bringing you a screening of the moving new documentary film, Maximum Tolerated Dose. Equal parts found-footage mash-up, verité investigation, and artful meditation, 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. This film will help us re-ignite the debate about animal testing by bringing these rarely-heard perspectives to the fore.

Please check out the film trailer.

This free event is your opportunity to learn more about animal experimentation in the medical industry, think about the primates and other non-human animals in laboratories right here in our city, and most importantly, invite friends and family who haven’t thought twice about this issue. This meaningful and thoughtful film will leave you inspired by the honest and open conversations about what happens in laboratories. We may even have a special guest speaker! This is not an event to miss

About Anika

Why I'm vegan: I believe that we create our future and I want a future for all animals and our planet that is not based on greed, but on compassion, reason, and generosity. I think that veganism is the future and that a sustainable world will require animal liberation. Why I'm with NARN: I really dislike when people complain about how things are, but don't take action. I don't want to be one of those people. I want to walk the walk, as they say. Also, I realize that I came to veganism by being influenced by other people. I'd like to do the same for others. Favorite quote: "It is never too late to be what you might have been." - George Eliot
