“Movies have a lot to teach us, whether it’s a fact-filled documentary or an animated film with lovable animal characters,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s free film series aim to foster justice, respect, understanding, and compassion for all living beings.”

PETA’s motto is “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.”
