Blood Lions - Screening of the compelling documentary
Saturday, 28 November 2015 from 14:30 to 17:30 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Blood Lions is a new feature length documentary that exposes the truth behind the multi-million dollar lion hunting and breeding industry in South Africa. It follows acclaimed environmental journalist and safari operator Ian Michler, and Rick Swazey, an American hunter, on their journey to uncover the realities about the predator breeding and canned lion hunting industries in South Africa.
It is a story that blows the lid off claims made by these operators in attempting to justify what they do. Last year alone over 800 captive lions were shot in South Africa, mostly by wealthy international hunters under conditions that are anything but sporting.
Ian has been following this story since 1999, and he goes onto the breeding farms to witness the impacts that decades of intensive breeding is having on the captive lions and other predators.
Blood Lions is a compelling call to action and shows how you can get involved in a global campaign to stop lions being bred for the bullet.
The screening of Blood Lions will follow on from the March for Cecil which will be held in Trafalgar Square at 12h00 on Saturday 28th November. You are all invited to join the March, and please share with all your friends and family. For more information on the March - go to the Facebook Page.
The format of the event will be the Blood Lions screening followed by a Question and Answer session with key members of Blood Lions, Protecting African Lions and the Global White Lion Protection Trust. We will then be holding a charity auction for the cause with many lion related prizes. Merchandise from each of the Organisations will also be available to purchase.
We have also just been informed that Jerome Flynn, acclaimed actor and patron of the Global White Lion Trust will be joining us for the event!!
