Screening: An Apology to Elephants -a documentary on elephants in entertainment

This film explores the beauty and intelligence of elephants as well as threats to their survival. Focusing on the lives of elephants in captivity, this documentary tells the troubling story of what happens to elephants in the name of entertainment.

WHEN: Saturday February 15th - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

WHERE: Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center  172 Allen St. New York, NY 10002


This event aims to increase public awareness about what the circus industry does to animals behind the scenes. We hope this screening will generate further interest in our current anti-circus campaign and will encourage even more people to participate in our demonstrations against Ringling Bros. during February-March 2014. This will be a call to activism.

This is a Nomadic Cat event.
