Skin Trade (The Movie)
2009 · Unrated · 1h 18m
The fur industry uses misleading campaigns to get people to commit the ultimate atrocities permitted against animals. Consumers are misled by retailers who assure them that animals used for fur are humanely euthanized, intentionally hiding the reality of how the animals are hideously killed.
Step inside the world of Skin Trade. Hundreds of hours of interviews with insiders, designers, leaders, and celebrities compiled in a heart-punching documentary directed and produced by award-winning director Shannon Keith.
This film lends a voice to the voiceless whose skin is ripped from them while often still alive. Understand what makes this savage industry tick and what it will take to change it.
Whether you are a fan of fur or repulsed by the thought, you owe it to yourself to watch this moving peek inside the dark world of ugly glamour and painful beauty.

“In the name of God and His creation, we thank the courageous, heroic, loving people in the true and powerful Skin Trade: Protectors of the helpless animal friends.” – Supreme Master Ching Hai

“It’s because of this movie that I had a total shift occur.” – Julia Gerard, fashion designer
