We are beyond thrilled to be the featured film on the front cover of POV, Canada’s premiere magazine about everything documentary.

Here is a taste:

Instead of bombarding the audience with images of animal abuse, Marshall structures the film around McArthur’s journey, which adds a human centre and allows for necessary moments of reprieve from the horror. For instance, McArthur speaks openly about her PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), which she counters by visiting an animal sanctuary. In these moments Marshall seeks to reveal “the beauty and the hope and the change” in a topic that is not often thought of in these terms. As such, Marshall hopes viewers will “walk away in a reflective state of mind, as opposed to arriving at a conclusion immediately.”
