DCTV, 87 Lafayette, NYC
DCTV and Filmwax Radio cordially invite you to a special live podcast event, a conversation with filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, one of the most respected teams of documentary filmmakers working today, about their longstanding careers and new documentary feature, Unlocking the Cage.
Unlocking the Cage follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans, by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform a chimpanzee from a “thing” with no rights to a “person” with legal protections.
Unlocking the Cage opens May 25th at New York’s Film Forum, and nationally in June.
This event is a part of DCTV Presents, DCTV’s signature screening and event series that highlights innovative and provocative work from the independent filmmaking community.
