HEY, NYC PEOPLE, what are you doing Monday night? No plans? Then check out the New York City premier of Bold Native, hosted by music mogul, entrepreneur, and vegan animal advocate Russell Simmons.

Bold Native is the first fiction film about Animal Liberation Front (ALF) — a controversial animal protection group that the FBI calls their top domestic terrorist priority.

In the film, an ALF member wanted by the government for domestic terrorism emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action, while his CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. Juicy stuff!

“We need more creative, fun, impassioned and entertaining movies like Bold Native to drive the important message of animal rights to the masses,” Simmons said.

The event will take place on Monday, July 26, at Anthology Film Archives with screenings at 7 p.m. and at 9:15 p.m. There will be a short Q&A following both screenings with producers Casey Suchan, Denis Hennelly, and stars Joaquin Pastor and Nik Tyler.

    I went to conference for animal rights where it was previewed. Many people vegans, activists and non-activists alike felt that it made AR activists look very bad.

      Define “many” Joe. This was definitely a small minority opinion, mostly amongst people who don’t understand film and story-telling.

    Would love to check this out. Are there any screenings planned for Canada?
