Behind the Mask: The Story of the People Who Risk Everything to Save Animals is a documentary film about the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) that too more than three years to complete.
Created by animal-rights lawyer Shannon Keith, this documentary serves as a response to the misinformation against the animal rights movement that’s ever-present in mainstream media.
The eye-opening documentary is about animal rights activists who break into laboratories and other facilities to provide raw footage of the living conditions of the animals. It includes well-known names within the movement, some of whom are in prison for taking direct action.
About the Filmmakers
Behind the Mask was produced by Uncaged Films & ARME (Animal Rescue Media & Education) and directed by Shannon Keith. Find out more about the film at Behind the Mask .
“The film is directed and narrated by Shannon Keith, a lawyer who herself came under investigation by the FBI for representing members of the ALF and other Anarchist Animal Liberation groups after they had been arrested for carrying out Direct Action campaigns against animal abusers, or found themselves being harassed by the State for being vocal proponents of the Animal Rights/Liberation Movement. Keith provides us with background information on the ALF’s philosophy; their tactics; the inspirational players who have risked their freedom and given their lives for the lives of others; what they are responding to and why they are doing it; and a look at the ludicrously disproportionate responses taken by the State to target and demonize members of the movement and their supporters.” – meddlecore.
