According to filmmaker Thomas Jackson, A Prayer for Compassion follows him ‘on a quest that crisscrosses America, and takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent’.

He asks the question: “Can people who already identify as ‘spiritual’ expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, and make choices in alignment with this value?”

Vegan celebrity fans

The film has won support from a slew of vegan celebrities, including Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch who said: “I was very moved by this powerful documentary and the many spiritual leaders spoke of the imperative to align our actions with our spiritual values and take responsibility for humanity’s treatment of animals.”

Musician Moby added: “This film reminds us that no being should be exempt from grace, kindness and compassion.”

The premiere takes place on May 23 at 6pm. You can find out more and get tickets (£15 – £21.91) here
