Vegan Documentary ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ To Screen Next Month

Vegan documentary Land of Hope and Glory: The hidden truth behind UK animal farming will screen in Kent on February 1.

The event, which has been organized by Kent Vegan Events, Gulbenkian, and Animal Aid will take place at the Gulbenkian, in Canterbury.

Tod Bradbury, Campaign Manager for Animal Aid, will give a pre-film talk, briefly touching on Animal Aid’s investigations – some of which feature in Land of Hope and Glory – and what you can do to help stop the abuse and appalling practices the investigations have uncovered.

Vegan documentary

The documentary was created by Surge – an activist organization Co-founded by Earthling Ed. Speaking about the movie, Surge said: “In 2005, a film called Earthlings became the most pivotal documentary of the animal rights movement. Here in the UK however, we found the phrase ‘that doesn’t happen in our country’ coming up far too much.

“We wanted to set the record straight. Through Land of Hope and Glory we aim to show the truth behind UK land animal farming by featuring the most up to date investigations as well as never before seen undercover footage, with a total of approximately 100 UK facilities featured throughout the film.”

Post-film support

According to Kent Vegan Events, support will be on hand after the screening.

“There is no doubt that this is an extremely difficult film to watch and will affect people deeply,” a spokesperson told Plant Based News.

“With this in mind, there will be an informal support group in the Gulbenkian café after the film, which will give people the chance to offload, share their feelings about the film, just sit and be still or have some support from the local vegan community.”

Tickets for the event cost £5 – £8.70. You can buy them here
