Fauna Foundation is pleased to be part of a special screening of Maximum Tolerated Dose, a feature-length documentary film exposing the world of animal testing. Directed by Karol Orzechowski and produced by Jonathan Hodgson, Jennifer Bundock & Karol Orzechowski, this special evening will be presented by the National Capital Vegetarian Association and will commence with Gloria Grow speaking about the film, which features a segment on Darla, one of Fauna’s rhesus macques. A portion of the proceeds from this screening will go to support the work of the Fauna Foundation.
The screening will take place September 20th.
“Maximum Tolerated Dose is the first feature-length documentary by Decipher Films. 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. MTD aims to re-ignite the debate about animal testing by bringing these rarely-heard perspectives to the fore.”
