Bold Native Sells Out Los Angeles Premier
First feature film with an A.L.F. storyline sells out its premier in Los Angeles.
Far from the farms and labs where the A.L.F. does its work, 400 people gathered in Los Angeles last week for the premier of Bold Native. I was fortunate enough to attend the screening which included speakers, and a Q & A with the filmmakers and cast. Hundreds of people left with copies of Bite Back Magazine, and perhaps a clearer understanding of the A.L.F.s motives – and the plight of non-human animals in general.
To capitalize on the energy created by the film, the filmmakers followed the screening with speakers addressing how people can get involved to help animals. Speakers included activists from Last Chance for Animals, Farm Sanctuary, Band of Mercy Los Angeles, and attorney Matthew Strugar on the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.
Bold Native follows the protagonist Charlie Cranehill, an underground A.L.F. organizer, as he orchestrates a nationwide coordinated A.L.F. action with over 30 targets. The film generated significant buzz in anticipation of its release that only increased with the film’s debut and (current) west coast tour.
That a film like Bold Native is being received by mainstream audiences is a testimony to the quality of the script, and to the falsehood of beliefs that many tactics of the A.L.F. do not enjoy broad-based support.
Bold Native will be making the rounds with screenings across the country in the coming months. Contact Bold Native to set up screenings in your area, and support this landmark film.
