CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak
is making great strides and progressive movement forward. The movie trailer(s) produced to date have screened around the world and covered by international news organizations with precedent-setting media coverage, including China, the mecca of the notorious fur trade and one of the world’s largest suppliers of animal skins.
The trailers alone have garnered tremendous support around the globe for the film and its message, ensuring a solid foundation for worldwide distribution. Important strategic alliances have been made globally with organizations that are directly working to end this barbaric industry.
The success of the new movie trailer in bringing the largely unknown cat and dog fur trade into the international spotlight has gained the attention of the international media community. The trailer was also translated with Chinese subtitles for our strategic partner, ACTAsia for Animals, for their groundbreaking "No Fur China" campaign, which was promoted throughout Asia (including Taiwan, Singapore, Japan and Korea), as well as Europe, the UK and the US, with significant results.
Most recently, the trailer was exhibited in a Movie Theater Screening in Shenzhen, China on Valentine's Day 2014, in an important event for ACTAsia’s precedent-setting “Fur Free Life” Campaign. “The movie trailer has already made a great influence
” according to Pei Su, Founder and Executive Director of ACTAsia for Animals.
If a trailer alone can achieve this level of success, imagine the significant impact of a completed documentary! This critical film is an investment in humanity and the lives of countless animals around the world who suffer agonizing deaths in silence every day. They are killed by horrific methods and many are skinned alive. The fur trade is criminal and spiritually corrupt.
50 MILLION+ fur-bearing animals
, including man’s best friend and feline companion, are brutally murdered without mercy for the barbaric fur trade every year, at the hands of industry with no respect for life.
This 50+ MILLION count does not include rabbits whose numbers are staggering. The United Nations reports that at least 1 BILLION rabbits are killed each year strictly for their fur, which is used in clothing, as lures in fly-fishing, and for trim on craft items, even trinkets
Unbeknownst to most, the majority of fur-trimmed items (even pet toys) labeled as “faux fur” or “synthetic” is likely real fur, mostly from cats and dogs. It is estimated that more than 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are murdered each year for their fur and meat in China, where there are no governing laws to protect animals. Their fur is considered a ‘cheap source’ because the animals are usually strays, stolen pets or used for food. Subsequently, the fur is exported under false labeling to Western countries and used in the Chinese domestic market.
The cruelty and torture inflicted upon the innocent animal victims of the fur trade is an aberration of social justice and violation of animal rights at its core. An egocentric and disconnected society is perpetuating the holocaust of animals with no moral conscience or ethical boundaries.
Ultimately, the consumer subsidizes the industries that perpetuate these atrocities. Our purchasing power is our greatest weapon in this war to conquer the evil forces of inhumanity. It is up to us to effect the change that we wish to see - not the government or corporations, but the people have the power to change our planet. If not now, when?

"Cry of the Innocent: The Voices that Can’t Speak is a monumental film and call to action that is a magnificent contribution to the animal rights movement."
- Dr. Shenita Etwaroo http://shenitaetwaroo.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-time-to-evolve-our-consciousness-is_31.html
"A revealing new film explores the psychological and spiritual factors that contribute to animal cruelty in the fur industry. Rather than merely covering tales of brutality, Cry of the Innocent: The Voices That Can't Speak interprets from the "soul perspective" in an attempt to explore the underlying source of animal abuse and the subsequent disconnection in society. As Lowson has stated: "The power of respect will change our world" - respect for ourselves and respect for life."
