Dominion, an upcoming feature-length vegan documentary that focuses on how animals are used and abused in Australia has announced its premiere date.

According to a spokesperson for Aussie Farms: “By exploring six primary facets of our interaction with animals – Pets, Wildlife, Scientific Research, Entertainment, Clothing and Food – the film will question the morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom.”

The premiere will be taking place on April 14th at the Dendy Cinema Opera Quays, courtesy of Aussie Farms, Animal Liberation NSW, and Sydney Pig Save.

There will be guest appearances at the premiere from activist James Aspey, as well as the director of the film and founder of Aussie Farms, Chris Delforce, who will be hosting a Q&A session. Other guests are also expected to join the line-up, and will be announced shortly.

Speaking about the concept behind the film, Delforce said:

Animals are inferior, humans are superior and therefore that somehow grants us the right to have dominion over them, so I’m challenging that assumption, that perception, of animals being inferior and the idea that if someone is inferior then it gives us the right to control them, exploit them and use them for our own ends.”

The documentary was partly crowdfunded, with donors giving $19,000. In December 2015, animal protection institute Voiceless gave the filmmakers a grant.
