Beyond any other documentary to watch about the extent of how humans have exploited animals is Earthlings. There is nothing quite like watching real footage of how humans have unleashed their own version of hell upon the planet – a much more horrid and grotesque version of hell than humans self describe in the Bible.
Earthlings is a 2005 American documentary film about humanity’s use of animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. A good way to describe this movie is to say, there is life before and life AFTER watching Earthlings. Best quote to sum up the importance of this movie is:
“If I could make everyone in the world see one film,
I’d make them see EARTHLINGS.”- Peter Singer, author Animal Liberation
Nothing can quite prepare you for staring hard reality right in the eye, or how you will feel once the wool has been pulled from your eyes. Here is Ellen DeGeneres describing her own experience seeing the movie for the first time and her continued journey of learning to live a more healthy life.
