NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS

Synopsis

Called to Rescue is a documentary film that showcases the incredible work being done on animal sanctuaries for the fortunate farm animals who have been saved from the modern animal agriculture production machine.

Sanctuaries depend on volunteers, donations, and the tireless work of staff to save and shelter as many animals as possible. Our film provides an inside look into life in a sanctuary, the dedication needed to maintain a safe haven for these animals…and of course, the incredible stories of how these animals are saving lives.

Every animal has a name and a story. Their journeys range from the remarkable to the heartbreaking, but all end within a safe haven.

The undercover film work that has been done in CAFOs, often brutally awakening viewers to a look at what “life” used to be like for many of the animals that were met during filming. The film focuses on the stories that unfold afterward, and the remarkable humans who dedicate their lives to saving a life.

While the first chapters of these stories are often heartbreaking, the spirit of these incredibly strong animals is nothing short of inspiring. The film wants to re-awaken our innate knowledge that animals are sentient beings, with families and a desire to live out their natural life free from suffering.

Critic Reviews

Called to Rescue sends a strong message, but a gentle one. Those who can’t stomach farm investigation videos depicting graphic animal cruelty will find this much more digestible. What won’t be so easy to digest, however, will be a slab of bacon or fried chicken breast after watching the movie. The inspiring film is clear: animals are thinking, feeling individuals — and they are suffering for the American palette.” – Nina Jackel. Lady Free-Thinker. Film Celebrates Those Who Spend Their Lives Helping Farm Animals. 7 November 2017
