<<First Name>> –

You're invited to a special event in Los Angeles 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 and a successful two-week run in New York City, the documentary will on June 24 begin a one-week run at the Laemmle Monica Film Center in Santa Monica.

We’d be delighted if you could join us on opening night for the 7:20PM premiere, followed by a Q&A at the theater and an after-party at Plant Food + Wine. Secure your tickets today, as entry is limited: Proceeds from sales go directly to the NhRP. 

What guests can expect from the event is vegan passed apps, red, white and rosé wine, nonalcoholic beverages (Kombucha Dog and basil lemonade) 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.
