Documentary: Unlocking the Cage @ TIFF Bell Lightbox
May 3 @ 12:30 pm

Unlocking the Cage is about the work of Steven Wise, a lawyer with the Nonhuman Rights Project, as he and his team work for legal protection for animals.

We realize 9:30pm on a weeknight isn’t a great time to see a movie! But we feel the director is likely to be at this screening for a Q&A. It’s only 92 mins long so you can probably still get home by midnight!

This is part of the Hot Docs film festival. ***Be sure to buy a ticket in advance as many Hot Docs screenings sell out!***
