EARTHLINGS (see FILMS) is a 2005 documentary (with Spanish subtitles) about mankind’s use of animals as pets, and for food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix the film features music by Moby — both of whom are practising vegans, as is the director Shaun Monson and co-producer Maggie Q. The film focuses on pet stores, puppy mills and animal shelters, as well as factory farms, the leather and fur trades, sports and entertainment industries — and finally the medical and scientific profession, EARTHLINGS contains footage obtained through the use of hidden cameras and chronicles the day-to-day practices of some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely on animals. Advisory — this film advocates veganism
