"Earthlings" film screening

BARC will be hosting a free screening of the acclaimed documentary film Earthlings on Thursday, February 28 at 8:00pm in Foxboro Auditorium. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, Earthlings describes the ways in which people abuse and exploit nonhuman animals. Earthlings is perhaps the most comprehensive and compelling film of its kind, covering the treatment of animals used for food, pets, clothing, entertainment and scientific research.

Everyone is urged to attend, but most importantly, please encourage friends and other acquaintances to come as well. It's worth it.

Want to help prepare for the screening? Please contact adam_hoffman@brown.edu

NOTE: This week's BARC meeting will be moved to 8pm and held in Wilson 103 in order to accommodate people going to see Michael Pollan speak about food and ethics.
