A few weeks ago, I headed down to Lincoln Center to check out a screening of Mercy for Animals’ award-winning documentary Fowl Play. Little did I know I was watching a film that would later be chosen as an Official Selection at the New York International Film Festival.

The film, which exposes the truths behind modern egg production, was recently given the honor and will be screened at the festival later this month.

About the film, Anoo Cottoor, executive artistic director for the New York International Film Festival said, “Two thumbs up!! Wow! Wow & Wow! A must see documentary! A very, very powerful documentary! Big congratulations to Mercy For Animals for making this compelling documentary and getting the word out.”

Fowl Play will be screened as part of the festival at City Cinemas Village East on Sunday, July 25 at 6pm. Tickets are just $15 online and include admission to the after party, as well. Oh yeah, and if you purchase your tickets through the Mercy for Animals website, you’ll get a free MFA logo t-shirt and a copy of the film on DVD. Nice!

To find out more, visit MercyForAnimals.org. Congrats, guys!

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
