Movie Trailer Reviews

CRY OF THE INNOCENT Movie Poster (Revised) (Graphic Design by Nir Vana)

“A revealing film explores the psychological and spiritual factors that contribute to animal cruelty in the fur industry.  Rather than merely covering tales of brutality, Cry of the Innocent: The Voices That Can’t Speak interprets from the “soul perspective” in an attempt to explore the underlying source of animal abuse and the subsequent disconnection in society. As Lowson has stated: “The power of respect will change our world” – respect for ourselves and respect for life.” – National Geographic News Watch http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2012/06/18/cry-of-the-innocent/ 

“The innocent in the title of Lowson’s movie are the estimated 50 million animals that are slaughtered annually for their fur for the sake of fashion… Lowson doesn’t follow the temptation to communicate her message with stark visuals.  Instead, she takes the more sensitive road.  Lowson has recently released her film trailer in an effort to bring attention to what she believes are the deeper implications of the killing of animals for fur, and to raise funding for the completion of her film.” – Chicago Examiner   http://www.examiner.com/article/who-are-you-wearing-chicago

“The time to evolve our consciousness is now.  Cry of the Innocent: The Voices that Can’t Speak is a monumental film and call to action that is a magnificent contribution to the animal rights movement.” – Dr. Shenita Etwaroo http://shenitaetwaroo.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-time-to-evolve-our-consciousness-is_31.html

You cannot walk away from this if you have any conscience.” – T.B. “Wildlife Tracks” and “ECO-ED” – Mtubatuba, KZN, RSA

“I have seen some graphic films before and could not watch the whole thing. This film shows how it is not necessary to show all the hideous brutality. The horror is in the animals’ eyes and their pain and fear is unbearable. Extremely well made.  I want to see this being shown in every cinema before every film.” – C.P.

 “I hope God counted my tears.  This is an excellent film to Truth.” – D.C.

“This film decisively shows that China is not only brilliant in the art of war and culture; but in cruelty and greed. How these companion animals, taught to trust man and look to him for sustenance and protection, are treated is disgusting, archaic and deplorably cruel. It would be banned in most countries as citizens would not tolerate such barbaric treatment of other living creatures.” – M.S.

“Please sponsor this important film! Get fur abolished, the more people understand how it is “harvested” they won’t be able to buy it. Although never a fan of fur, I had no idea how bad it is for the animals, especially in China where they are skinned ALIVE. I can’t even imagine it. Some humans are vile and soulless.” – B.P.

“I’m moved to tears by your incisive images and commentary.  Your hauntingly beautiful films are a sad indictment of the world in which we find ourselves living, and the fact that you had to make it at all shows the magnitude of the battle all decent citizens must fight. It’s very sad that human beings can bring themselves to commit such vile atrocities in our supposedly enlightened world. It is my sincerest hope that with articulate and intelligent souls like you standing up to be counted we will one day, in the near future, bring an end to such horrors. I wish you all the best with your powerful projects.”- Dr. Shenita Etwaroo
