<<First Name>> –

You're invited to a special event in New York City to celebrate the theatrical release of Unlocking The Cage, a new documentary about the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP) by renowned filmmakers DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.
 
Following its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the documentary will on May 25 begin a two-week run at the Film Forum in New York City.

We’d be delighted if you could join us on opening night for the 7PM premiere, followed by a Q&A at the theater and an after-party at a private loft. Secure your tickets today, as entry is limited to only 50 people: bit.ly/NonhumanRightsNYC. Proceeds from sales go directly to the NhRP. 

What guests can expect from the event is live music, vegan passed apps by plant-based chef Jay Astafa, red and white wine, nonalcoholic beverages, swag bags, and — of course — great company and conversation. Brush elbows with Steve and the filmmakers as we together toast to a better world for our fellow earthlings.
Led by attorney Steve Wise, the NhRP is working to break down the legal wall that separates all humans from all nonhuman animals by demanding recognition of the legal personhood and fundamental rights of great apes, elephants, dolphins and whales. Starting in 2013, with the support of primatologists from all over the world — including Dr. Jane Goodall — the NhRP filed their first lawsuits on behalf of four chimpanzees living in captivity in New York State.
 
Unlocking the Cage closely follows Steve and the org's legal team throughout this arduous and at times heartbreaking process — from law school classrooms to roadside zoos, from sanctuaries to courtrooms — where they argue for their freedom from imprisonment.
 
We think that, as a fellow animal advocate, you’ll find this story inspiring and compelling.
