A new documentary about the legal argument for personhood for some animals (Nonhuman Rights Project) has a limited theatrical release, starting in NYC next week, and going to LA, Chicago, and other cities.

I saw this Friday night in NYC at Film Forum, and I would encourage anyone with the means to check it out. A good turnout during theatrical runs can help a film like this have a longer life and get more exposure, so go sooner rather than later if interested. We are the core audience that can help it transform into a much more mainstream audience.

As the name implies, there are scenes with caged animals, that set up the problem being addressed. These are not easy to watch.
