Vegans, documentary lovers, science hounds: It’s time to get out of the house! There is a free documentary film screening tonight on capitol hill. The film, Maximum Tolerated Dose, which is so new it isn’t even on the film festival circuit yet, is being shared with Seattle as part of National Primate Liberation week.
Equal parts found-footage mash-up, verité investigation, and artful meditation, the film charts the lives of both humans and non-humans who have experienced animal testing first-hand, with hauntingly honest testimony of scientists and lab technicians whose ethics demanded they choose a different path, as well as the simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of animals who have seen both sides of the cage. This film will help us re-ignite the debate about animal testing by bringing these rarely-heard perspectives to the fore.
The film sponsors, NARN, and Seattle ADL are turning the local improv, indie, and fringe theater, Odd Duck Studio, into a cinema with a pop up screen and projector. Word on the street is that after the film, the Director of Chimpanzee Sanctuary NW will be guest speaking. There will even be a vegan concession stand!
