CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak
A Kathleen Lowson Film

Social responsibility, ecological preservation and evolution of consciousness are the challenges of this decade.  It is evident that we have not yet fully evolved as a society when the unconscionable practices and unspeakable cruelty of the fur trade, and the inhumane suffering of all afflicted animals, is still a reality in the 21st century.  The killing of defenseless animals is an atrocity and reprehensible violation of the innocent... all for the sake of fashion, vanity, and greed. 

Every year, over 50 MILLION defenseless dogs, cats, foxes, minks, rabbits, raccoons, baby seals and other sentient beings suffer unbearable cruelty and are slaughtered without mercy so that their fur can be made into products for the fashion industry.

The globalization of the fur trade has made it impossible to know where fur products come from.  Skins move through international auction houses and are purchased and distributed to manufacturers around the world. 

Canada's annual seal ‘hunt’ is the largest slaughter of marine mammals on the planet, with more than one million baby seals killed in the past three years, almost all of them as young as 12 days -- the majority killed before they have eaten their first solid meal.  The Vancouver Winter Olympic Games in 2010 were celebrated at the same time as the Canadian and Nova Scotia government were allowing sealers to murder baby seals in cold blood in a protected nature reserve... beneath the veil of the international spotlight on the Canadian Olympics.

China is one of the world's largest suppliers of animal fur.  More than 95 percent of China's finished fur garments are exported for sale overseas, and much of it is sold in North America.  There are no regulations governing fur farms in China meaning miserable lives, unspeakable torment and excruciating deaths of defenseless dogs, cats, foxes, minks, rabbits, raccoons, and other innocent animals for their fur.  The nightmarish conditions for these defenseless animals who are unlucky enough to be on China fur farms were hidden from the extravaganza of the 2009 Summer Olympics.

Killing animals for the skin on their bodies is inhumane and inherently cruel, and should no longer be tolerated in a civilized and evolved society.


The impetus that drives the fur trade is the fashion industry, and film is the most powerful medium in which to expose it.  The revealing truth will be seamlessly interwoven within the fabric of a moving, powerful dramatic story with motion picture value, which will evoke worldwide media attention.  The movie will engage society with the compelling truth through an entertaining and dynamic drama that will awaken viewers and illuminate their minds about the power of consumption that drives industry.

The film’s innovative blueprint and vision will expand the idea of ‘conscious filmmaking’ in the 21st century, transforming the documentary medium [with its limited market reach] into a new metamorphic paradigm with motion picture value, and effectively reach a universal marketplace.

This dynamic film, through the power of dramatic storytelling, will bring the reality and senseless atrocities of the fur trade, and the fashion industry that drives it, to an unprecedented level of global awareness, thereby significantly impacting market demand, saving the lives of countless animals around the world, and bring to light, the consequential effect of the energy of violence in our society.

The value of entertainment and the encouragement of social responsibility are not mutually exclusive.  In fact, by synergistically combining these elements, we tap into deeper layers of the psyche which elevates the movie experience and invigorates the senses. 

This precedent-setting film will leave an indelible imprint on the soul of humanity, intuitively evolving the collective consciousness toward sustainable change, while successfully entertaining audiences worldwide.
