Francois Primeau, The Age of Beasts: a film about cruelty and compassion
The Age of Beasts is a documentary film written, produced and directed by Francois Primeau, an independent filmmaker from Montreal, Canada. This feature examines the paradoxes that come to light when we consider that certain species find their way to our hearts and others to our plate. It also probes the deep bond we have with our pets and highlights the work of people who are devoted to protecting animals. At its core, it proposes that veganism is not a radical and marginalized movement, nor a lifestyle, but a form of global consciousness that expresses itself in a life lived according to ethical principles. It is meant to bring to consciousness the pitiful state of the animal condition around the world and to provoke a debate regarding the unashamed exploitation of animals by human beings.
