Join Animal Rights Coalition on at the Minehaha Free Space, Monday, August 11th, at 6:30 PM for a movie!
We will be watching Wolf Children, an animated feature length film from Japan (subtitled in English). This will be the first in a new series of events for Animal Rights Coalition where we will view non-documentary films and then discuss the movies in relation to animals and our activism. The film follows young university student Hana, who falls in love with a man who change into a wolf at will. Following his untimely death, the young university student mother is left with two young children, unable to control whether they turn into wolves or humans, and decides to move to a rural area in order to keep their secret. This heartwarming film paints a portrait not just of the trials of growing up, but also, what it means to a raise a child - and an animal.
Wolf Children is a powerful film, using the children who can freely change into wolves as a metaphor for living with animals, and a meditation on what we owe them, and what they really need from us. The film is directed by Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars) and runs just under two hours with credits. Following the film, we will have a discussion on what we saw, and how we think it relates to bigger issues involving animals and activism. Hope to see you there!
This event is free, though donations are welcome and appreciated. All donations collected will be split between the Animal Rights Coalition and the Minnehaha Free Space.
