I have just watched this excellent documentary titled Earthlings. The name of the documentary may not suggest it at first, but it does make a lot of sense once you start watching it. It’s a video about animal abuse. Perhaps one of the harshest and most comprehensive video documentaries on animal abuse produced to date. It’s not easy to watch at all, especially if you’re an animal lover and human hater like me. Earthlings basically dips into every situation known to men involving animals and how we as fellow Earthlings have come to exploit animals, abuse them and brought many on the brink of destruction. Earthlings documentary is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix – great guy, great actor, animal rights activist and an overall great person with fantastic voice. Director and producer of Earthlings – Shaun Monson could not have picked a better person to narrate this documentary. It also comes as no surprise that Earthlings documentary is fully supported by Woody Harrelson – an activist for sustainable life choices. Musical score for Earthlings has been provided by another activist and an excellent musician – Moby.
Earthlings documentary is divided into five main section: Pets, Food, Clothes, Entertainment, Research. Each of these “industries” if you will involve animal abuse and exploitations, oftentimes done behind closed doors so average folk doesn’t know the real deal. The documentary reveals all the colorful details of mistreatment of animals with recordings of actual events that will make your non existent heard bleed tears. It’s saddening how far we as humans have fallen. The documentary also dubs into seal hunting in my home country of Canada. It also talk about (to me the most shocking) dolphin mass slaughter in one of my favorite countries – Japan and also talks about whaling which is done in great deal in another of my favorite countries – Iceland. So unfortunate so many great countries disregard the fact that animals have feelings. Animals experience fear and pain, more so than humans as many of their senses are developed better than same sense in humans, hence the experience of pain through these fine nerves is more intense.
Earthlings is definitely a great documentary that everyone should see. Prepare for a rollercoaster of images that will make you extremely sad and upset. It doesn’t help one bit that I have just seen another gut wrenching animal abuse video – Kenny Glenn beating and abusing cat Dusty. Not to mention that fail of humanity with chimpanzee in Connecticut I mention in my previous post that deals with the cartoon by Sean Delonas.
I truly feel like animals should really just gang up on us disgusting humans and exterminate us once and for all. We’re the scum of this Earth. We are the one destroying it and we’re also destroying these precious animal. Shame on us. We deserve the worst of punishments. Everybody, please watch Earthlings and reconsider what you eat, what you wear, what you use and what you watch for entertainment. Make adequate lifestyle changes for the better. These defenseless animals need it. If you don’t do it, then who will? Please
