Cages of Shame
Cages of Shame, directed by award-winning film-maker Martin Guinness, investigates the greed and cruelty behind the harrowing bear-bile industry in China. The film follows the rescue of 10 bears from the last bear-bile farm in Shandong province -a heart-stoppingfour-day road-trip across China to Animals Asia’s sanctuary in Chengdu, and life-saving surgery on the back of a truck for elderly Oliver, a 30-year-old brown bear whose entire life had been spent in a tiny cage. Unflinching in its honesty, but ultimately inspiring, Cages of Shame was chosen among 90 submissions from over 20 countries as the winner of the Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Content in Entertainment Documentary Grant in 2011.
Up in Smoke
This is a film about a technique that could save more carbon emissions annually than all global aviation combined. It is a film about one of the biggest contributors to tropical deforestation and global warming: slash and burn agriculture. It sits at the crossroads of two of the greatest threats to global stability: accelerating climate change and diminishing food security. The film follows British scientist Mike Hands, who has laboured for 25 years to perfect a sustainable farming technique to replace slash and burn farming in equatorial rainforests.
The Odeon Lounge has very generously donated the use of the theatre and the technician has volunteered his time
DOORS OPEN AT 9.30AM
