The rescue of ten bears from deplorable conditions at a Chinese bile farm is depicted in the gripping documentary “Cages of Shame." But if you want to screen the award-winning film you better make your plans now because it only takes place one night.
The Animals Asia operation called "Moon Bear Rescue" that saved ten bears from a horrific, painful life on a bear bile farm in Shandong, China, where bile farming has been used for traditional medicine, inspired UK, Australian film director, Martin Guinness to produce “Cages of Shame.” The film recounts the journey of the moon bears through the rescue mission and the shuttering of the last bile farm in Shandong, China.
“When I first heard about bear farms, I could hardly believe that humans could treat thousands of these wonderful animals in this way. I knew straight away that I had to try and make a film to draw the world’s attention to the plight of the bears,” Guinness said.
The documentary screening will be followed by questions and answers with Animals Asia’s US Communications Manager, Maya Gottfried.
