CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak
A Film by Kathleen Lowson

A precedent-setting documentary exploring the sociological and spiritual factors which contribute to the iniquitous and inhumane treatment of nonhuman animals, with its center on the fur trade as a paradigm of a more expansive nemesis permeating our world.

A film that people will want to see, not close their eyes in horror.

A documentary unlike any film about animal cruelty, CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak will convey the truth from a deeper level of the psyche, bridging the link to cruelty through the soul perspective.

The revealing truth will be seamlessly interwoven within the fabric of a moving, powerful film, which will engage society, transform consciousness, and bring to light, the consequential effect of the energy of violence in our society.

The film will be evocative, interpreting from the ‘soul perspective’ rather than reportage, revealing the psychological and emotional truth, unearthing a unique, precedent-setting approach to explore the underlying source of harm in our society.

The value of entertainment and the encouragement of social responsibility are not mutually exclusive.  By synergistically combining these elements, we tap into deeper layers of the psyche, which elevates the movie experience and invigorates the senses.

The perpetrators and the people who support such atrocity disconnect from its cruelty and perpetuate the condition.  Unless we heal the source of inhumanity, the disease will prevail.  Any lesser remedy will be akin to applying a bandage to a severed limb.   - Kathleen Lowson, Director, CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak
