‘Excited and privileged’

Plant Based News Co-founder Robbie Lockie said: “We are extremely excited and privileged to be working with the Dominion team to help bring this film to viewers in the UK.

“While it is heartbreaking to witness the suffering documented, we strongly believe Dominion has the potential to open hearts and minds across the world. Helping to put it in front of an audience goes to the heart of who we are as activists.

“We are also proud and happy to be working alongside Surge Activism and The Save Movement in hosting this premiere – remarkable organizations who are working on the frontline to save animals’ lives.”

PLEASE NOTE: There will be further UK screenings following the premiere, in cities including Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Glasgow, and Liverpool. PBN will share information on these events when they are confirmed.
