This eye-opening documentary follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. After thirty years of struggling with ineffective animal welfare laws, Steve and his legal team, the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), are making history by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform an animal from a thing with no rights to a person with legal protections.

All screenings begin at 6:00 p.m. Registration is encouraged but not necessary. Stay after each screening for a conversation with special guests!
