Modern farms are struggling to keep a secret. Most of the animals used for food in the United States are raised in giant, bizarre factories, hidden deep in remote areas of the countryside. Speciesism: The Movie director Mark Devries set out to investigate. The documentary takes viewers on a sometimes funny, sometimes frightening adventure, crawling through the bushes that hide these factories, flying in airplanes above their toxic "manure lagoons," and coming face-to-face with their owners. But this is just the beginning. In 1975, a young writer published a book arguing that no justifications exist for considering humans more important than members of other species. It slowly began to gain attention. Today, a quickly growing number of prominent individuals and political activists are adopting its conclusions. They have termed the assumption of human superiority speciesism. And, as a result, they rank these animal factories among the greatest evils in our history. Speciesism: The Movie brings viewers face-to-face with the leaders of this developing movement, and, for the first time ever on film, fully examines the purpose of what they are setting out to do.

    Great movie! The beginning could use some help with the jerky camera footage, but it was only a few minutes and it got much better. Enjoyed it very much.
    A lot of interesting and new approaches to such an important topic.

    An interesting and different approach in this movie. Loved the message and story, production quality needs some (a lot) of help. As a film maker, I like the film making be transparent. It's too bad a little more effort was not paid to the "art" of film making. Mark was gracious and answered all questions. Very nice to meet him. Hope he calls me to work on his next movie ; )
